Return of coronavirus relief programs for agriculture – webinar recording available
Recent COVID-19 relief legislation has allowed a number of programs to provide additional financial support to a wide range of agricultural businesses.
These programs include updates to the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), employee retention credits, economic disaster loans, sick leave tax credits and an expansion of the coronavirus food aid (CFAP).
Michigan State University Extension offered a free webinar, “Return of the Coronavirus Relief Programs for Agriculture,” on February 11, 2021, and a recording of that webinar is now available.
In this webinar, Corey Clark, an extension farm business management educator at Michigan State University (MSU), provides an overview of legislation and program changes that benefit agriculture.
Viewers will learn about program eligibility, what types of documents will be needed to participate in the program, and who to contact for more information. Clark also shares additional resources that farmers will find useful when making decisions about these federal programs.
