Resilience awards are intended as emergency relief for farmers, ranchers, farmworkers, and their families. Use of the funds is restricted to household expenses, such as groceries, home utilities, medical bills, counseling, or other household expenses not directly related to the commercial operation of a farm or ranch. The funds may not be used for any business expense or investment. The IRS guidelines regarding direct assistance to farm, ranch, and farmworker families prevent Farm Aid from granting funds to support a farm or ranch and its business costs. Your acceptance of this award signifies your understanding and agreement to these use requirements.
Family farmers, ranchers, and farmworkers who have suffered hardship because of the COVID-19 crisis in CO, WY, NM, ID, UT, AZ are eligible to apply. Groups that qualify for preference under this fund are women and/or farmers, ranchers, and farmworkers of color (Black/African American, Asian/Asian American, Pacific Islander, Hispanic/Latino, American Indian, or Alaska Native). To qualify for this preference more than half of the agricultural business must be owned by individuals who are socially disadvantaged.
Successful applicants will receive a one-time $500 emergency resilience award.
Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis and reviewed on a weekly basis until funds run out. Checks will be issued to approved applicants within 10 business days of weekly review meetings.
