USDA MARKET FACILITATION PROGRAM

The last day to submit your Market Facilitation Program (MFP) application is February 14, 2019. The final day to certify 2018 production is May 1, 2019.

Producers of corn, cotton, sorghum, soybeans, wheat, dairy, hogs, fresh sweet cherries and shelled almonds may be eligible to sign up for an MFP payment. MFP is designed to help producers significantly impacted by actions of foreign governments resulting in the loss of traditional exports.

Contact your local FSA county office for more details to apply or visit www.farmers.gov/MFP.
