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
Announcing the recipients of the FFA COVID-19 Chapter Assistance Program. FFA funded 270 FFA chapters from 45 states, providing more than $490,000 to chapters in need. More than 700 chapters applied to help subsidize the loss of program revenue and to assist in financially navigating through these uncertain times. Should additional funding become available, the applications that were successfully submitted but not funded will be entered into the new review process.
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.
