Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $10,000 are available to farms in Vermont affected by the recent tropical storm. The mission of the fund is to help farms recover from damage sustained during the storm so that production can resume or return to normal. Grants will be awarded to farms that are committed to remaining in business. Awards should help farms recover from damages that are not covered by insurance.

A farm will be considered eligible if:
• It is located in Vermont,
• It is committed to remaining in business,
• It had gross annual sales of at least $20,000 in calendar year 2010, or it is a small or start-up farm that can demonstrate its investment and potential for growth, and
• It has contacted the Vermont Farm Service Agency (FSA).

Grants may be used to help replace infrastructure, seed, feed, livestock, supplies, and equipment lost as a result of Tropical Storm Irene, only to the extent those losses are not covered by insurance or can be covered by other sources of income. Grants may also be used to help pay outstanding bills a farmer may have such as farm mortgage costs, land lease payments, or animal feed bills. Grants cannot be used to help recover projected income from crops lost in the storm.
