Coronavirus relief programs for nontraditional commodities webinar to be held Tuesday, Nov. 24

Join us to learn more about how these valuable programs can benefit your farm and what they might mean for your farm taxes.

The CARES Act set into motion a variety of financial relief programs that were available to agricultural producers impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Many of these programs, like the Paycheck Protection Program and the Coronavirus Food Assistance Programs, helped to offset the financial losses that producers experienced due to the pandemic. Some of these programs have been available to growers of specialty crops and livestock, as well as floriculture and nursery crops.

An online webinar, “Coronavirus Relief Programs for Nontraditional Commodities,” will be held on Tuesday, Nov. 24 from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. Michigan State University Extension educators Corey Clark and Mike Metzger will provide further information about these programs in this webinar. A key focus will be on structure and eligibility requirements, and include the application process for the Coronavirus Food Assistance Program 2 as signup continues until Dec. 11. In addition, the tax implications of these programs will be addressed to help you better manage your tax planning and reporting.

This webinar is targeted to producers of specialty crops, livestock, and livestock products, including those who have not participated in government programs in the past. However, a significant portion of the webinar will be relevant to traditional row crop and livestock producers as well.

Come join us and see how your farm can benefit from these relief programs and how you can manage their tax implications. Please visit our registration page for more information and (or) to register for the webinar.
