In response to Hurricane Ida, RAFI-USA is offering hurricane relief grants to farmers whose crops, livestock, farms, and/or homes were damaged in the storm. Farmers in impacted areas of the South and Southeast are eligible for $500 grants which can be used for farm and/or household expenses directly related to the hurricane.
Applications will be reviewed and approved on a rolling basis until funds are expended.
As funds are limited, we ask that farmers carefully consider whether this emergency relief grant applies to their situation.
If you have questions about the application or are having difficulty accessing the application, contact Sabine Frid-Bernards at [email protected] or 919.930.5083.
