Small business owners are constantly faced with new challenges, and this past year has not been short of them. Farmers and ranchers in particular have been faced with a regular increase in burdensome regulations while also facing the many challenges the COVID-19 pandemic has brought. A number of programs and resources are available that farmers and ranchers are able to utilize, but many times it can be hard to know what exactly is out there and how to access them.


Imperial County Farm Bureau has partnered with California Treasurer Fiona Ma and Small Business Majority to host a virtual workshop that will have guests speakers on a range of resources available to farmers and ranchers. The workshop will introduce programs through quick, eight-minute presentations. It will be a crash course that will give you the information and resources you need to pursue the programs that may be the right fit for your operation.


Topics of discussion include:

  • CalSavers Retirement Savings Program
  • Sales Tax Exclusion (STE)
  • Small Business Energy Efficiency Financing (SBF)
  • California Rebuilding Fund Loan
  • California Relief Grant
  • USDA’s Farm Service Agency programs
