Florida counties named natural disaster areas due to Jan. freeze

-A A +A
By The Staff

U.S. Department of Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack issued an official declaration designating 60 Florida counties, including Levy, Gilchrist and Dixie counties, as primary natural disaster areas, due to losses caused by record cold weather, frost, and freezes that occurred from Jan. 2 through Jan. 14.

This designation makes farm operators in both primary and contiguous counties eligible to be considered for assistance from Farm Service Agency, provided eligibility requirements are met. This assistance includes FSA emergency loans and the Supplemental Revenue Assistance Payments Program (SURE). SURE was approved as part of the Food, Conservation, and Energy Act of 2008 and was implemented beginning on Jan. 4. FSA will consider each application on its own merit by taking into account the extent of losses, security available and repayment ability.

The local FSA office is in Gainesville and for more information, please call 352-379-4500.
