Wisconsin’s rural communities and agriculture industry are critical to the state’s success. During his first term, Gov. Evers has worked to strengthen every corner of Wisconsin, including direct investments in Wisconsin farmers to help them meet today’s challenges head-on. Gov. Evers created the Office of Rural Prosperity, which is working with rural leaders across the state to find solutions that improve economic opportunity and connect farmers with state programs. Gov. Evers knows our state is strongest when everyone can succeed – in his second term, he will continue to fight for Wisconsin farmers and rural communities. Gov. Evers also directed $100 million to support more than 20,000 Wisconsin farmers through the Farm Support Program. Over the three rounds of this program, direct support has exceeded $1 million to farmers in more than half of Wisconsin’s 72 counties.
