Farmers and ranchers impacted by severe drought in Missouri will be able to access money through a farm relief loan program.
The Missouri State Treasurer’s office announced yesterday (Wednesday), the program will provide $100 million in reduced-rate loans to farmers affected by drought.
The loans will be available through the state’s MOBUCK$ program.
Applications for the farm relief loan will be accepted until October 13, or earlier if demand exhausts funds.
Eligibility requires residency in counties outlined in Governor Mike Parson’s drought executive order, or in counties entering moderate, or worse draught status.
The application portal and additional information on the program can be found online at the Missouri State Treasurer’s website.
