USDA’s Pandemic Assistance for Timber Harvesters and Haulers (PATHH) to Ohio farmers:
Secretary Vilsack announced that USDA is providing up to $200 million to provide relief to timber harvesting and timber hauling businesses that have experienced losses due to COVID-19. This new program is part of USDA’s Pandemic Assistance for Producers initiative.
On March 24, USDA announced it is establishing new programs and efforts to provide financial assistance to farmers negatively impacted by the Coronavirus pandemic.
The new program is called the USDA Pandemic Assistance for Producers and is intended to reach a broader representation of producers than previous COVID-19 aid programs.
The Southwest Ohio Agricultural Conservation Menu (SOACM) was designed to help local producers and landowners find information, technical assistance and programs related to conservation practices. The SOACM website also includes a Farmer Forum where farmers can post questions, share information and discuss local issues. Information on soil health, watershed health and local water quality monitoring data is also available to provide citizens with updated information related to the health of our local streams and lakes.
