For rural residents of Pennsylvania, COVID-19 has hit businesses and farmers hard. Now the Agricultural Department has put together a resource guide, not just for farmers, but for anyone who lives in a rural community and needs to know what help might be available for them.
Visit this link or you can find it by searching for “Covid rural resource guide”.
The guide is broken up into categories of who would benefit from these programs (for-profits, non-profits, agricultural, government entities, etc.).
They’re also organized by what kind of help is available, such as technical assistance, training, management, financial assistance, or general state and local resources.
Listen to the interview with Deputy Under Secretary of Agriculture for Rural Development Bette Brand.
