Coronavirus Financial Aid

May 21, 2020

Navigating COVID Funding

Nearly daily there is new information released for grants, low interest loans, and other government assistance programs related to Covid-19 financial aid and direct producer payments. From the initial PPP loans provided by the Small Business Administration, which were available through our local lenders, to the latest release of information for Coronavirus Food Assistance Program (CFAP) direct payments from FSA, keeping up on how to apply or knowing what is available can be a challenge.

Don't be afraid to ask for help.

We encourage all producers to reach out to your local FSA office and primary lender to make sure you are informed of the programs available and how to sign up. Many of these programs have limited funding and may not be around for long.
