Business Emergency Gap Assistance Program (BEGAP) for Agriculture - $1 million is available through the Vermont Agency of Agriculture, Food & Markets for food and farm businesses, organizations, or individuals who raise animals and/or grow food or crops for sale, or who operate on-farm processing operations that have experienced physical damage due to the flooding event. There is no deadline to apply.  Farms must meet eligibility requirments.  Funds are awarded on a 'first-come-first-served' basis.  The program will run until funds have been fully distributed.

SEVERE WEATHER & FLOODING LOSS AND DAMAGE SURVEY - If you are a business, organization, or individual that raises animals and/or grows feed or crops for anyone beyond your immediate family, we kindly request that you fill out this survey. It should only take between 5 and 10 minutes to complete.  The purpose of this survey is to, as accurately as possible, capture the type and scale of the damage agricultural producers suffered throughout the state. Survey data will be used to inform response efforts, effectively allocate resources, and advocate for future relief and recovery programs.  

  • DASHBOARD RESULTS - The SEVERE WEATHER & FLOODING LOSS AND DAMAGE SURVEY has been available for farmers and agricultural sector businesses to respond to since July 30th, 2023.  All data displayed in the dashboard is a summary of that data, reported by participants.  The accuracy of this data should be considered incomplete as the Agency believes not all impacted individuals and businesses have yet reported. The data will be updated daily at 8am to account for any new respondents.
