Farmer Resilience Initiative Application
How Much Money is Awarded?
Successful applicants will receive a one-time $500 emergency relief payment.

What Can the Funds be Used For?
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 the farm or ranch. The funds may not be used for any business expense or investment. The IRS guidelines regarding direct assistance to farm families prevent Farm Aid from granting funds to support the farm and its business costs. Your acceptance of this Relief Fund award signifies your understanding and agreement to these use requirements.
