Three Logger Aid Packages Available

Three separate aid packages have been made available to loggers by state and federal officials related to either losses due to the COVID pandemic and/or the closure of Duluth’s Verso Paper mill:

  • In June, the legislature passed a provision allowing refunds on spruce and balsam permits

  • The legislature also passed a provision utilizing federal COVID relief dollars to increase the maximum allowed on the state’s Safety Grant Program to $25,000

  • In July, the US Department of Agriculture released details of its $200 million Pandemic Assistance for Timber Harvesters and Haulers program


Details of all three programs are below.  For further assistance, call the TPA office at 218-722-5013.
