Kentucky Agriculture Disaster Relief Program Aiding State Farmers

The Kentucky Center for Agriculture and Rural Development is working with the Kentucky Farm Bureau Education Foundation and the Kentucky Department of Agriculture to develop the Kentucky Agriculture Disaster Relief Program. This program will help farmers in Kentucky access needed farm supplies from local farm retailers following the disasters experienced in many areas of Kentucky on December 10 and 11, 2021, and on January 1, 2022. Farm retailers in the program will receive funds to offset the costs of supplies for farmers, up to $1,500 per eligible farmer. Eligible supplies include fencing materials, chain saws, tools, feeders, and feed. Farmers will have to certify that they have farm property in one of the following counties and experienced farm damage from the specified storms: Barren, Caldwell, Calloway, Christian, Fulton, Graves, Hart, Hickman, Hopkins, Logan, Lyon, Marion, Marshall, Muhlenberg, Ohio, Taylor, and Warren.
