Flood relief funding is currently available for Catskill region farmers through the Raise the Roof Farmer Flood Relief Fund.  Hundreds of community members and a dozen local organizations have contributed over $30,000 since September.  Small grants are available to farms that suffered flood damage or product loss during Hurricane Irene/Tropical Storm Lee.  A first round of $15,000 in funding was dispersed in early December. A second round of funding is open through January 15, 2012.  Applications can be downloaded from the Scholarships & Grants section of the Pure Catskills webpage online atwww.purecatskills.com or by contacting Challey Comer atccomer@nycwatershed.org or (607) 865-7090.
