WILDFIRE RECOVERY FUND

WILDFIRE RECOVERY

You can contribute here.

The October 2017 firestorm is having an extremely severe impact on our communities. This loss will be especially challenging for these growers because:

  • Over the course of the last 18 months, these growers have spent their life savings getting permits and preparing for state licensure.
  • These folks don’t qualify for crop insurance like other farmers.
  • These folks can’t get loans like other business owners.
  • These folks won’t qualify for federal emergency relief funds.
