Tariff Help Is Here

In the wake of the President’s latest trade tariffs, farmers can now sign up for relief, which will be helpful to some farmers in the short term. Back in July, the United States Department of Agriculture announced $12 billion in emergency aid to farmers, hurt by retaliatory tariffs from China. The Market Facilitation Program, one of three aid programs, will pay out around $4.7 billion to producers directly impacted by these tariffs. The funds are available to producers of corn, cotton, sorghum, soybean, wheat, dairy and hogs.
