NOFA-NH's GOFERR Testimony & COVID-19 Community Impact Survey
We thank the 178 respondents who provided input on NOFA-NH’s COVID-19 Community Impact Survey. Your responses were extremely valuable in shaping NOFA-NH’s testimony to the Stakeholder Advisory Board of the Governor’s Office for Emergency Relief and Recovery (GOFERR), the advisory board that will help the Governor decide how to spend New Hampshire’s $1.25B CARES Act funds.
Update as of June 3, 2020: Despite written testimony from NOFA-NH based on a community survey of 60 farmers, many of whom indicated negative financial impacts from COVID-19, farms that grossed less than $50,000 in 2019 will not qualify for this aid. The present plan excludes almost 90% of the over 4,100 farms in the Granite State. Read NOFA-NH's full statement here.
