FSA disaster program sign up underway
CAMERON–Milam County USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) Executive Director, Kevin Humphrey, announced that the 2009 crop year Supplemental Revenue Assistance Payments (SURE) program sign-up began Monday, Jan. 10.
SURE is a disaster program that provides assistance to farmers and ranchers who have experienced losses caused by natural disasters.
“Natural disasters can turn what would be a profitable crop year into a year of hardship and financial loss,” Humphrey said.
