Farmers who wish to participate in the Market Facilitation Program and have not yet signed a CCC-910 are urged to visit their local county FSA offices by close of business on Thursday, February 14.
The Market Facilitation Program was offered to farmers as part of the trade mitigation program administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). The original deadline to apply for funds had been January 15, 2019, but because farmers could not apply for the program during the closure of USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) offices, the deadline was extended to February 14.
