Crop farmers experiencing natural disaster events in 2020 and 2021 will soon start receiving WHIP+ program payments. The USDA unveiled more details about the Emergency Relief Program this morning. Ag Secretary Tom Vilsack told the Red River Farm Network earlier this month payment distributions should happen in June. “This emergency relief program, based on the WHIP+ legislation passed by Congress last September, is designed to help with drought and other weather disasters,” said John Hoeven, North Dakota Senator. “USDA will send out pre-filled applications to farmers this month, based on their crop insurance. Assistance should be out in June.” Get the payment rates and learn more about the Emergency Relief Program.
