Additional Eligibility Criteria:

To be eligible for PATHH, an individual or legal entity must:
- Have been in operation as a timber harvesting business or timber hauling business for at least part of the periods from January 1, 2019, through December 1, 2019, and January 1, 2020, through December 1, 2020. USDA will adjust your gross revenue proportionally if you did not operate during the entire period for one or both years.
- Be a business that derived at least 50 percent of gross revenue from timber harvesting and/or timber hauling from January 1, 2019, through December 1, 2019, and from January 1, 2020, through December 1, 2020. Specifically, eligible activities to earn revenue during these periods include cutting timber, transporting timber, and/or the processing of wood on-site on the forest land, such as chipping, grinding, converting to biochar, cutting to smaller lengths, etc.
- Have experienced a loss of at least 10 percent in gross revenue during this period in 2020 as compared to 2019. You can calculate your loss in revenue using the following formula, where both years reflect gross revenue from January 1 through December 1: Percent Revenue Loss = ((2019 Gross Revenue – 2020 Gross Revenue) / 2019 Gross Revenue) x 100
- If a logger, must have a 2017 North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) code of 113310 for tax purposes, or other supporting documentation. The NAICS code for your business will be located on your federal tax return documents for 2019 and 2020. Loggers who do not have an eligible NAICS code may submit alternate documentation. Contact the FSA office at your local USDA Service Center to learn more about options for your operation.
- If a trucker, must have a NAICS code of 484220 or 484230 and must have filed an IRS Form 2290, or must provide other supporting documentation. The NAICS code for your business will be located on your federal tax return documents for 2019 and 2020. Truckers who do not have an eligible NAICS code or IRS Form 2290 may submit alternate documentation. Contact the FSA office at your local USDA Service Center to learn more about options for your operation.
- Comply with provisions of the “Highly Erodible Land and Wetland Conservation” regulations, often called the conservation compliance provisions. These will be addressed via form AD-1026 during the application process.
- Not have a controlled substance violation.
- Be a citizen of the United States or a resident alien.
- Submit a complete PATHH application form (FSA-1118) and provide all required documentation. The below section details all documents required to apply for PATHH.
