Farm Aid Family Farm Disaster Relief Fund Hurricane Harvey 2017
Facilitated by Texas Organic Farmers & Gardeners Association (TOFGA)
Farmer Disaster Assistance Now Available
Family farmers in Texas can now access much-needed relief funding following Hurricane Harvey. Farm Aid has partnered with the Texas Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association (TOFGA) to distribute emergency relief grants to help farmers meet household expenses. Families who rely on farming for their income, live in the declared disaster areas, and are experiencing hardship as a result of the storm are encouraged to complete an application, even if other relief such as crop insurance or FEMA funds have been made available.
