Support FFA Members and FFA Chapters in Times of Need
Unexpected events affect FFA members, their families, advisors, chapters and communities from time to time. This page is designed to serve as a starting point for others looking to help in various ways. We also encourage those among us — our student members, advisors, alumni and supporters — to help local FFA chapters during their times of need.
Current FFA members, chapters and communities affected:
COVID-19 Chapter Assistance Program
FFA chapters faced with the loss of revenue due to the pandemic are eligible for the FFA COVID-19 Chapter Assistance Program. The program requires an application and offers up to $2,000 in one-time financial assistance per chapter to offset pandemic-related losses. Financial assistance will be provided based upon funding availability and demonstrated need. Apply by June 12.
Our thanks to Cargill for providing the initial funding for the COVID-19 Chapter Assistance Program.
Puerto Rico Earthquakes
On Jan. 7, Puerto Rico was shaken by a magnitude 6.4 quake, causing heavy damage to the southern area of the island. Agriculture teachers who live in the north have established a Go Fund Me page to help fellow FFA members and advisors who lost their homes. You can also learn more about how you can help on the America Red Cross website.
One year to the day after Hurricane Maria made landfall in Puerto Rico, FFA New Horizons was on the ground there experiencing the resilience and dedication of its FFA members.
