Georgia Flooded Farms Relief Fund

Help now with your donations

The recent floods have caused a lot of heartbreak and damage to local, family farms. We are still assessing the situation as to the number of farmers that will need assistance and the extent of the losses. Some farms have extensive damage; they have lost all of their crops and suffered devastating livestock losses. Unfortunately, FEMA does not provide relief funds to farmers affected by the floods; they will only offer loans. In order to assist our local farmers we have created the Georgia Flooded Farms Relief Fund.

Donations will be provided directly to local, Georgia farmers in need. Please make checks payable to "Georgia Flooded Farms Relief Fund" and mail checks to
