Farmers from Moffat and Uintah Eligible For Emergency Loans

The Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue has designated Moffat and Uintah County as primary natural disaster areas, according to a press release from the USDA. This designation allows the Farm Service Agency to extend emergency credit to those producers who suffered losses because of drought conditions even if now the drought conditions have lessened. “Emergency loans can be used to meet various recovery needs including the replacement of essential items such as equipment or livestock, reorganization of a farming operation or the refinance of certain debts.” For those farmers looking for help, the deadline to apply for these emergency loans is January 30, 2020. The loans will be given out after the FSA reviews the loans and is based on the extent of losses, security available and repayment ability.
