Thanks to the Government shutdown, many FSA program signup deadlines have been extended to February 14th. The USDA’s Bill Northey said it’s not just the Market Facilitation Program that producers can sign up for.
“There are several different programs that to be able to qualify for losses that occurred in 2018, either folks need to turn in information by the end of January or a deadline of that time. Of course we’ve shortened up the time here, so we created some extensions for folks to be able to make applications.”
Including programs such as the Livestock Indemnity Program, Non Insured Crop Disaster Assistance Program, and Emergency Conservation Program. Other programs such as the Livestock Forage Disaster Program now have an extended deadline, to February 28th.
