Blunt Publishes Link to Public Resources for Drought Stricken Farmers

Senator Roy Blunt announced the launch of a resources page, www.blunt.senate.gov/drought, to provide information on the programs available to aid Missourians impacted by damaging drought conditions.

The webpage provides information about state and federal programs to support farmers and ranchers impacted by drought, including resources for haying and grazing on Conservation Reserve Program acres and eligibility for Livestock Forage Payments. Currently, 18 percent of Missouri is experiencing D3 drought conditions, and 2.3 million Missourians are impacted by drought.
