Farmers Can Sign-up for Email Updates on State Ag Assistance
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 05/29/2020

Wisconsin's interim agriculture secretary says details are still being worked out on how the state plans to distribute the $50 million set aside for producers under the Wisconsin Farm Support Fund. But those interested in applying for the assistance can now sign-up for email updates to keep them informed on the program.

Randy Romanski announced that the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture has a new section on its website for potential applicants to subscribe for updates on the WFSF, as well as the $15 million Food Security Initiative.

"These direct payments to farmers should be available soon," Romanski said on Thursday. "We continue to have discussions with farm groups that offered a variety of scenarios on how the funds will be used."

Last week, Romanski and Gov. Evers announced that there will be a small window of opportunity for farm owners to apply for the assistance; and that the criteria for distribution will not be on a first-come, first-serve basis.

DATCP and DOR are working out the rules of eligibility for the assistance program and will announce details within the coming week.
