CONCORD - This is the last day to apply for the New Hampshire Agriculture COVID-19 Relief Fund's second-round application for nondairy farms.
The forms are due online no later than 11:59 tonight.
The second round application specifically covers COVID-19-related expenses and/or lost sales incurred from July 1 to Sept. 30.
The non-dairy farm-specific relief program supports non-dairy farms that have experienced negative financial impacts due to COVID-19, including both non-dairy farms that registered for the original non-dairy farm program (for farms that had at least $50,000 of 2019 gross sales) ("Registered Farm Program"), and non-dairy farms generally ("Expanded Farm Program").
The Expanded Farm Program supports non-dairy farms that are not eligible for the Registered Farm Program, whether because they are not specialty crop producers, had less than $50,000 of 2019 gross sales, or missed the registration deadline.
The application is available here, by clicking on "NH Agriculture COVID-19 Relief Program - Non-Dairy Farms - Round 2", until Thursday, October 15, 2020, at 11:59 PM.
The same application is being used for both the Registered Farm Program and the Expanded Farm Program. If a farm does not submit an application by the deadline of October 15, 2020, it cannot receive relief funding for any COVID-19-related expenses and/or lost sales incurred between July 1, 2020, and September 30, 2020.
