(Washington, DC) — U.S. Senator John Hoeven said an issue with federal farm aid has been fixed. The North Dakota Republican says applications for the Emergency Relief Program mailed in May incorrectly omitted some farmers who had 2020 claims. USDA’s Farm Service agency says it will be issuing corrected applications to affected producers in August and will extend the deadline for farmers to return them indefinitely. The FSA Administrator says he’s heard positive feedback from North Dakota farmers and ranchers on the streamlined livestock and crop disaster programs.
