Hardship grants available to drought-affected farmers

By
April 05, 2014 |

Community Alliance with Family Farmers announces the availability of hardship grants for California family farmers who are unable to make ends meet this spring due to damage caused by the drought.

Thanks to a grant from Farm Aid, CAFF is joining with California Certified Organic Farmers to make these funds available to family farmers who use sustainable practices as well as certified organic producers across the state.

Each eligible producer may apply for a $500 grant to cover household living expenses. Requirements for eligibility include:

* Family farming operation with sustainable practices;
* Located in a county designated a disaster by USDA;
* Experiencing severe financial hardship resulting from the drought; and
* Have not received federal assistance for the same loss.

Preference will be given to farms that match the federal definition of a small family farm (those that have gross annual sales less than $250,000).

To qualify for emergency funds, completely fill out an application form and send to CAFF by April 30. The application form and more information may be downloaded at http://caff.org/programs/drought.

For more information, contact Kendall Lambert at 510-832-4625, ext. 13, or kendall@caff.org.
