MAILING LIST

The 2017 Butcher's Ball raised funds to be distributed to heritage breed pig ranchers in Texas impacted by Hurricane Harvey. If you were affected and would like to apply for funds, please read below

APPLICATION TO RECEIVE RELIEF FUNDS

The application can be obtained through the link below. Application for funding is open to all impacted heritage breed pig producers in the Federally declared disaster counties.

The application will require information and documentation for losses and/or disaster related expenses to aid in equitably distributing funds, such as photographs, copies of receipts for veterinary care, invoices or estimates for fence repair. A committee comprised of local producers and Piggy Bank leadership will review the applications and determine a method to equitably distribute the funds.

 

DEADLINE EXTENDED: The deadline for returning the application is January 31, 2018.

DISTRIBUTION PROCEDURES

Together, Piggy Bank and The Butcher’s Ball collected monetary contributions for relief and recovery efforts in support of heritage breed pig ranchers in Texas impacted by Hurricane Harvey in 2017. Contributors will receive a receipt from Piggy Bank acknowledging their donation. Piggy Bank proudly operates as a project of the Trust for Conservation Innovation (T4CI), which helps environmental leaders fulfill their visions by providing nonprofit status and fiscal sponsorship services for innovative conservation projects. To learn more about T4CI, please visit: http://trustforconservationinnovation.org/

One hundred percent of the funds received by Piggy Bank will be distributed to ranchers impacted by the hurricane and subsequent flooding. An application will be made available to all ranchers interested in being considered for a portion of the relief funds for ranching operations within the counties included in the Presidential Disaster Declaration for FEMA assistance. Membership in any association or parties is NOT necessary to be eligible and will not be considered in distributing funds.

The application will request information about losses and/or disaster related expenses to aid in distributing funds. Documentation of losses and/or expenses will be required. A committee comprised of local producers, Piggy Bank and local Texas leadership will review the applications and determine a method to equitably distribute the funds. Timing of distribution is unknown at this point. We will balance allowing enough time for contributions to be received with the desire for ranchers to receive the funds as soon as possible.

The committee will comprise of the following members:

Brady Lowe, Piggy Bank
Elaine Dillard, The Butchers Ball
Jonathan Beitler, The Butchers Ball
Joyce Hunter, Piggy Bank
James Carr, Cochon555
Tyler Horne, Urban Harvest
Felix Florez, Black Hill Meats
