The US Department of Agriculture is reminding farmers, ranchers and forest landowners that this Saturday, January 13, is the deadline to apply for the Discrimination Financial Assistance Program (DFAP).
This program is made possible by the Inflation Reduction Act, which provided $2.2 billion in funding.
The USDA is holding informational sessions at the Ellenville Public Library on Thursday and at the E.B. Crawford Public Library in Monticello on Friday and Saturday.
Tim Bruno spoke to Myles Caggins, the Chief of Media Relations at The Windsor Group, which was hired by the USDA to help run the Discrimination Financial Assistance Program.
