Apply for a Grant: Prevention pays for farmers who schedule routine safety maneuvers. Operation FarmSafe offers an opportunity to receive a free Certified Safe Farm (CSF) review, as well as a $2,500 grant to make improvements indicated by the review. The farm's CSF score is confidential, and there's no regulatory agency involved.
To apply, send a one-page application by April 30 with:
1. A brief description of your operation and family members working with you.
2. An explanation of how you and your family would benefit from a review/grant. Nationwide Agribusiness Insurance is funding four grants. Recipients will be notified in mid-May and will need to make an appointment with a CSF reviewer to visit their farm in June. Specified work must be done by August 1, when a Successful Farming editor and photographer will visit.
