-A A +A

 Ninety Kentucky counties are eligible for FSA emergency loans.

Sixty-eight counties have been declared as disaster areas due to damages and looses caused by drought that began April 1.

Twenty-seven counties, including LaRue, were named as contiguous counties where eligible family farmers may qualify for FSA EM loan assistance pursuant to Section 321(a) of the Consolidated Farm and Rural Development Act.

EM loan applications for physical and production losses will be received through April 15, 2013, and applications pending on that date may be processed and completed.

Farmers interested in applying for assistance should contact their local FSA county office at 765-2702.
