Some Farmers to Benefit from $2B Disaster Relief Funding
WESLACO – More than $2 billion in disaster relief money is now headed to U.S. farmers.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture said the funds will specifically go to those affected by hurricanes and wildfires in the last year.
Some of the money will go to farmers in Texas who were hit by Hurricane Harvey. But not all will be eligible.
Only those who farm in “presidentially-declared” disaster areas qualify.
More information is expected in the coming months.
