Navigating COVID-19 Federal Assistance for Specialty Crop Farmers
FREE ONLINE EVENT
June 25, 2020 – 6:00 -7:15 pm
Please join the Kansas Rural Center for a free online event focusing on navigating COVID-19 Federal Assistance for specialty crop growers.
The CARES Act has made some options available to farmers to help sustain their operations through the pandemic. However, navigating eligibility and paperwork can quickly become overwhelming. Watch a farm tour by A & H Farm and hear from Sarah Vaile, Staff Attorney at Farm Commons about the options available and how to navigate aid whether you are applying or have already received aid.
Farm Commons is a national nonprofit organization that provides the proactive legal resources that sustainable farmers need to become the stable, resilient foundation of a community-based food system. We work toward this mission by empowering sustainable farmers—those most affected by farm business law challenges—to create their own solutions within an ecosystem of support.
