Challenge

Every year and season there are floods, hurricanes, tornados, fires and various natural disaster that destroy towns, and cities like the Tenessee Floods of 2010. There is recovery for towns, and cities, and even home owners to fix up and keep thriving after a disaster. However, very few direct services help to insure that farmers and producers are able to recover after a disaster. With the growing decline to Black Farmers, a natural disaster just helps reduce the 1 % of black farms.

Long-Term Impact
