Ottawa County farmers can apply for disaster funds

Jan 26, 2022 | Around Ottawa County | 0 comments

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has made emergency funds available for Ohio farmers who experienced excessive rain in October 2021.

Due to heavy rains and flooding that saturated Northwest Ohio fields and destroyed crops in October, the USDA’s Farm Service Agency (FSA) declared Wood County a natural disaster area. This designation means farmers in Wood County as well as Ottawa, Hancock, Lucas, Henry, Putnam, Sandusky and Seneca counties can apply for disaster assistance. Additional information on the loans and disaster program can be found at http://disaster.fsa.usda.gov.

“Historic rains across Northwest Ohio this fall resulted in oversaturated fields, losses and significant uncertainty for many Ohio farmers,” said Sen. Sherrod Brown. “I encourage eligible Ohio farmers to apply for these disaster funds, so they can get the relief they need.”

Farmers can learn more about this announcement and whether they are eligible for these funds at their local farm service agency office.
