Financial Help Available To Rain-Soaked Western Mass. Farms

CISA

      A nonprofit organization is making emergency loans available to farmers in part of western Massachusetts who suffered losses due to the weather this summer.

    Community Involved in Sustaining Agricultureis offering no-interest loans up to $10,000 to growers who lost crops or had reduced yields.

    Some parts of the region had rainfall totals 75 percent above average in July and August.

    WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill spoke with Phil Korman, CISA’s executive director.

The record-setting tenure of Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno. The 2011 tornado and its recovery that remade the largest city in Western Massachusetts. The fallout from the deadly COVID outbreak at the Holyoke Soldiers Home. Those are just a few of the thousands and thousands of stories WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill has covered for WAMC in his nearly 17 years with the station.
