In response to a congressional request, GAO conducted a study to identify program efforts and funding levels of Federal food, agriculture, and nutrition programs in New England, analyzed program changes from fiscal years 1981 to 1982, and analyzed the impact of changes on the New England food system.

The Federal food, agriculture, and nutrition programs available to New England during fiscal years 1971 through 1980 emphasized food assistance to consumers. Programs directed at producers were second in the amount of assistance provided. Data analysis indicates that the fiscal year 1982 budget for agricultural agencies increased overall, even though funds budgeted for food assistance decreased. The final appropriation package for fiscal year 1983 has not been enacted, but current appropriation efforts indicate that funds for seven food assistance and dairy programs pertinent to New England would be reduced.
