On July 25, 2019, U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue announced details for the 2019 support package to assist farmers in response to trade damage from retaliatory tariffs. The relief strategy continues the three programs established in 2018: The Market Facilitation Program (MFP), the Food Purchase and Distribution Program and the Trade Promotion Program. Producers previously ineligible for MFP funding in 2018 may now be eligible for 2019 benefits, and re-application to the 2018 program is also available.
MFP applications are available online at www.farmers.gov/MFP. However, we strongly recommend that you contact your local Farm Service Agency (FSA) office and make an appointment to go in and sign-up as they anticipate a large number of producers will be affected.
