Rural Advancement Foundation International-USA (RAFI-USA) is pleased to announce the second round of grants from its Farmers of Color Network Infrastructure Fund. The program provides grants of up to $10,000 to farmers for projects to increase farm viability, support farmers’ local food economies, and preserve traditional farming practices.
As we experience the year-end holidays, we understand that for some, these can be hard times. From December 24 through January 4, the Hotline will be open, but will be taking messages and returning those calls as soon as we can. We’re here for you, so please don’t hesistate to call us at 866-586-6746.
Farming presents many challenges, and so often, these challenges are out of a farmer’s control. Natural disasters, droughts, low yield, low prices — worldwide pandemics — all can seem overwhelming. RAFI-USA’s Farmer Hotline is staffed by Benny Bunting, Craig Watts, and Tyler Whitley Monday through Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
