Cayce, SC (WCBD) – The South Carolina Farm Bureau Federation is creating the SCFB Agricultural Aid Foundation to help farmers recover from natural disasters, like the catastrophic flooding caused by Hurricanes Michael and Florence.
“Farmers in South Carolina are no strangers to hurricanes, flooding and natural disasters, especially after what we’ve experienced in the last few years,” says SCFB President Harry Ott. “They are the backbone of this state and this fund allows us to show them our support in their time of need.”
To be eligible, farmers should complete the application, farm in one of the affected primary or contiguous counties as designated by the USDA and provide documentation of loss.
Anyone interested in applying must submit the application by April 5, 2019.
The funds are available to all farmers, whether they are members of SCFB or not.
