USDA Approves Freeze Relief
Ten more counties were added to the list of counties now eligible for aid, bringing the total to 114 Missouri counties.
"I want to thank Secretary Johanns for approving this disaster declaration and our request for assistance," Gov. Blunt said. "This disaster declaration is good news for Missouri farmers as they recover from the freeze damage that occurred on their farms."
If eligibility requirements are met, farmers in all Missouri counties can receive low-interest emergency loans from the Farm Service Agency (FSA). Missouri farmers can receive more information about the loans from local FSA offices.
