FSA accepting emergency loan applications
Jack and Wise were declared eligible for Farm Service Agency (FSA) disaster emergency loans on June 29, 2016. Generally, that means that farmers who have lost at least 30 percent of their production caused by Severe Storms and Flooding from May 26, 2016 through June 24, 2016 are eligible for FSA loans. Proceeds from crop insurance are taken into consideration when determining eligibility.
FSA District Director at Large, Kelley R. Boone, is urging farmers who are interested in receiving an emergency loan to submit their applications into FSA as soon as possible.
Kelley R. Boone said, “We hope farmers will get their applications in early rather than waiting until near the deadline, which is March 1, 2017. The longer they wait, the more chance there is for long delays. If the applications come in early, we can avoid backlogs and speed up the process.”
The FSA office is at 5015 College Dr. Rm 1 in Vernon, TX 76384. The telephone number is (940) 553-3327 ext 2.
