Federal loans now available to Illinois Valley farmers with crop losses due to flooding

Posted by wlpo on August 13, 2015

If flooding left your crops underwater, help is available.

Every county in the Illinois Valley has been declared a federal disaster area based on losses because of rain and flooding this spring and summer. If you’re a farmer and think you qualify, give the Farm Service Agency a call. Federal help is based on the extent of your crop losses and your ability to repay the federal loan.

Only Texas has more counties considered disaster areas because of flooding than Illinois.
