Farm programs during COVID19: Making government programs work for you

The I-29 Moo University webinar series continues with a presentation by Minnesota Extension Ag Business Management Specialist, Megan Roberts, on Wednesday, Nov. 4. The webinar will be live from noon to 1 p.m., and there is no registration.

This presentation will dive into what we do and don’t know about COVID- 19 government programs, including PPP forgiveness application changes, tax considerations, and the upcoming Dec. 11 CFAP 2 deadline.

COVID-19 brought farms many challenges, as well as several new governmental programs to decipher — from the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) to the Coronavirus Food Assistance Program (CFAP 1 & 2) and mandatory Families FIRST Act employee sick leave.

Megan Roberts is a University of Minnesota Extension educator in ag business management. She holds a bachelor’s and master’s from the University of Minnesota and a doctorate from Texas A&M. Megan’s roots in agriculture come from growing up on a dairy farm, and she currently resides on a hog and crop farm in southern Minnesota with her husband and son.

No registration is required. Producers can log on to the presentation at: https://z.umn.edu/I29_government_program_update
