Farm Assistance Funds

A program that provides assistance to farmers who have suffered losses due to natural disasters is taking applications beginning Jan. 10.

The applications for Supplemental Revenue Assistance Payments cover the 2009 crop year.

To be eligible, a farm must have at least a 10 percent production loss on a crop of economic significance, a policy or plan of insurance under the Federal Crop Insurance Act or Noninsured Crop Disaster Assistance Program and been located in a county that was declared a primary disaster county or contiguous county. Without the designation, producers may be eligible if the loss is more than 50 percent of normal production.

There are also exceptions to the insurance requirement for some disadvantaged farmers.
