CISA Emergency Farm Fund

The CISA Emergency Farm Fund is currently closed.

CISA’s Emergency Farm Fund offers zero-interest loans to assist farms struggling to meet their immediate needs as a result of crisis events. The goal of this fund is to fill in critical gaps in available insurance and financing options.

The fund was established in 2011 in partnership with Whole Foods Market and Equity Trust, as a response to the damage suffered by farms in western Massachusetts due to Hurricane Irene. Through seven rounds of loans since its opening, the Fund has distributed 54 loans totaling $499,000.
