Subsidyscope — Agriculture Sector
- March 20, 2012
Quick SummaryIn addition to the $32.2 billion spent on agriculture-related grants and tax expenditures in FY2010, the Agriculture sector conveyed subsidies through other programs such as loans to farmers, export subsidies, and crop insurance programs.
The federal government spent at least $31.3 billion in fiscal year 2010 on grant programs that may provide a subsidy to the Agriculture sector. This spending, administered by four agencies (the Department of Agriculture, the Department of Health and Human Services, the Agency for International Development, and the Department of the Interior) across more than 100 active programs (Table 1), accounted for almost four percent of all government grants made that year ($822.6 billion).
