Producers have until Thursday February 14, 2019, to sign up for USDA’s Market Facilitation Program (MFP).
Producers can apply without proof of yield but must certify 2018 production by May 1, 2019.
Producers of corn, cotton, dairy, hogs, shelled almonds, sorghum, soybeans, fresh sweet cherries and wheat should apply at their local Farm Service Agency (FSA) office.
Producers need only sign-up once for the MFP to be eligible for the first and second round of payments.
How to Apply
MFP applications are available online at www.farmers.gov/MFP. Applications can be completed at a local FSA office or submitted electronically either by scanning, emailing or faxing. To locate or contact your local FSA office, visit www.farmers.gov.
Applications can also be completed via the farmers.gov dashboard by producers who have Level 2 eAuthentication accounts. Sign into the dashboard here: https://www.farmers.gov/sign-in. Producers who do not have an account can register for an account at www.eauth.usda.gov.
