Natural disaster program sign-up
Wilson County U.S. Department of Agriculture Farm Service Agency Executive Director Stephen Svacina announced Jan. 6 that the 2009 crop year Supplemental Revenue Assistance Payments (SURE) program sign-up began on 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,” said Svacina. “The SURE program is part of the ‘safety net’ that provides assistance to farmers and ranchers when disaster strikes.”
For information on the 2009 SURE program eligibility requirements, visit the local Farm Service Agency office located at 1106 10th St. (U.S. 181) in Floresville or visit http://www.fsa.usda.gov/sure .
