The fund provides direct financial assistance exclusively to certified organic producers and processors/handlers who suffer losses due to extreme hardship such as fire, flood, freeze, insect pressures, and drought. Since 2007, CCOF has distributed funds annually to members of the organic community who are in need.

Eligibility Criteria:

  • Severe economic loss experienced in the 2015 calendar year
  • Submission of documentation or supporting evidence of economic loss resulting from the hardship (required for consideration)
  • Submission of a receipt for organic certification fees paid in 2015 (by any accredited certifier)
  • Operations that have not received CCOF disaster or hardship funding in the last three years
  • Operations that have not received federal assistance for the same loss

This application must be received by the CCOF Foundation no later than October 23, 2015. Applications received after this date will not be considered.
