The Family Farmer Emergency Fund provides financial assistance to farmers and ranchers in crisis.
Applications are currently being accepted for those experiencing hardships related to drought and COVID-19, particularly those from disadvantaged communities. If you’re a farmer seeking assistance, read on. Or click here to donate.
- Family farmers who are actively working the land, derive a portion of their income from their own farm business, and are involved in the day-to-day operations of the farm
- Farmers whose operations make a minimum of $10,000 and a maximum of $400,000 in gross sales annually
- Because of systems of historic oppression, the most vulnerable populations often bear the brunt of a crisis. For this reason, at least 50% of all grant funds will be awarded to farmers of color, immigrant farmers, and undocumented farmers.
