CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Farm Service Agency approved assistance for farm owners in Cape Girardeau county according to a news release.
The assistance comes through The Farm Service Agency's Emergency Conservation Program.
On FSA's website the Emergency Conservation Program says it helps farmers and ranchers to repair farmlands destroyed by natural disasters.
Assistance would be available for damage sustained during The New Year Flood in December of 2015 and January of 2016.
To qualify for assistance the website says an inspection would need to be done to determine if the damages are eligible.
Land owners have until March 31 to apply for possible assistance, and it is still unclear where the funding would come from.
