Grand Forks County Eligible for Assistance

North Dakota farmers in Grand Forks County may be eligible for emergency loans.
Farmers in Grand Forks County that have suffered physical and production losses due to weather conditions can apply for loans through the USDA. Those eligible must have experienced losses from excessive rain, snow, flooding, flash flooding and cool temperatures from April 1 through June 30.
Only Grand Forks County is eligible because it is a neighboring county to Minnesota that was hit hard with bad weather last year.
Farmers and producers must apply for loans by June 7, 2010. All applicants must provide information for insurance claims and damages, and each case will be considered individually.
Those who suffered 30 percent of losses or more and cannot get credit from any other establishment are most likely to be granted loans.
Any eligible farmers and producers must apply at the county Farm Service Agency.
