Over 3,100 Sign-up for Round II of Farm Support Program
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 08/19/2020

Wisconsin's agriculture secretary says applications have been coming in at a steady pace for the second round of the Wisconsin Farm Support Program. During Tuesday's episode of the Professional Dairy Producers of Wisconsin Dairy Signal, Randy Romanski told an online audience that 3,152 applications have been submitted to the Department of Revenue website as of August 18.

Unlike the first program in June, farmers who's gross income ranged between $10,000 to $5 million during the 2019 tax year are eligible to apply.

"We can tell you that out of those who applied, about a third of them fall in that $10,000 to $30,000 bracket of gross sales," Romanski said. "This shows that there was a need for the expanded eligibility."

Agricultural producers of any kind may sign-up for the program, as long as they have not received funding during the first round.

The DOR is taking online applications through August 24 in an effort to disburse the remaining $8.4 million still available to struggling farmers from the federal CARES Act.
