Farm Spot remains committed to making our CSA financially accessible to our neighbors, and we are once again able to offer subsidized shares for the upcoming season. The subsidies are funded by your fellow Farm Spot members. This year we’ve made some changes to the qualifications to increase access for people needing more financial assistance, so please read the following carefully before submitting your registration.

Subsidized shares are now available at two levels, depending on your income:

Share A, at a cost of $461.40 is for people who fit into the guidelines adapted from the Self-Sufficiency Standard for the City of New York: One Adult: $27,919• One Adult, One child: $47,854• One Adult, Two Children: $62,420• Two Adults, Two Children: $68,175. A minimum of a $75 deposit is required upon registration, and you may pay the balance in full or by monthly installments during the six months of the growing season at $50 per month.

Share B, at a cost of $274.85 is for people who fit into the guidelines based on the WIC program by the size of each household: One person: $21,775 • Two people: $29,471 • Three people: $37,167 • Four people: $44,863 (for families of five and up, add +7,696 per person). A minimum of a $50 deposit is required upon registration, and you may pay the balance in full or by monthly installments during the six months of the growing season at $50.00 per month.

Income verification is on the honor system — we won’t ask for proof of your income. If you have substantial resources beyond earned income, please be mindful of those who don’t and purchase a full-priced share instead. We cannot offer discounts on any share other than the vegetable share.

To maximize the subsidized shares, we ask that you split the share with another share member who also fits the same income guidelines as you if you have a smaller family size (which many Farm Spot families typically do due to the bounty of the share, especially during peak season). We may be able to match you up for the subsidized shares ONLY provided they are still available. To sign up, please complete an application and check the appropriate box for a subsidized share.
