The Missouri Department of Agriculture announced an agriculture disaster relief fund to help Missouri farmers recover from severe storms, floods and tornadoes that have impacted thousands of families and businesses this year. The Missouri Agriculture Disaster Relief Fund will address the immediate needs of farm families, extend grants to non-profit organizations for infrastructure repair and clean up and help individuals or organizations with major disaster grants.

Administered by the Missouri Agricultural and Small Business Development Authority, the fund will offer assistance for the following:

  • Immediate need - This grant of $500 is available to Missouri farm families recovering from a natural disaster and is designed to help those most devastated by the disaster meet their most urgent needs. The grant may be used for household or agricultural purposes and is available on a first come, first serve basis as long as funding for this purpose is available. The farm family must have been directly impacted by a natural disaster and have suffered physical and/or economic loss.

  • Grants to organizations - Up to $5,000 is available for non-profit organizations, counties, municipalities and other political subdivisions for infrastructure repair, clean up or other projects that assist in recovery for the farm community.

  • Major Disaster Grant - Funding in amounts greater than $5,000 is available on a special needs basis. Any individual or organization may apply for these grants but organizations who can serve a large number of producers will be given priority.
