Farm Aid is partnering with National Farmers Union to distribute emergency relief grants.
Farm and ranch families in Illinois, Kansas, Missouri and Wisconsin can now access much-needed financial relief following the devastating spring floods in the Midwest.
Farm Aid is partnering with National Farmers Union to distribute emergency relief grants to help farmers meet household expenses. Families who rely on farming for their income, live in the declared disaster areas, and are experiencing hardship as a result of the storm are encouraged to complete an application, even if other relief such as crop insurance or FEMA funds have been made available.
While there is no deadline to apply, applications are reviewed as they are received and there is a finite amount of funding available. Applications will be reviewed by a team of NFU staff and representatives from your state. Approval is based on the applicant qualifying as a family farm and demonstrating economic loss.
Applications are available online at farmcrisis.nfu.org.
Please call Tom Bryant at 202-554-1600 with any questions or to have an application mailed to your address.
Donations to support these efforts can be made to Farm Aid’s Family Farm Disaster Fund at https://give.farmaid.org/give/54454/#!/donation/checkout.
