Gov. John Hickenlooper requested a disaster designation due to losses caused by hail, high winds and flash flooding that occurred June 7 through July 5, 2012. The primary disaster county in this designation is Weld County, and the contiguous disaster counties are Adams, Boulder, Broomfield, Larimer, Logan and Morgan counties. This designation makes all family-sized farm operators in primary and contiguous counties eligible to be considered for low interest emergency loans from Farm Service Agency provided eligibility requirements are met. FSA will consider each loan application on its own merits, taking into account the extent of losses, security available, repayment ability and other eligibility requirements.
Deadline for filing an application is April 15.
For applications and further information, contact your local Farm Service Agency County Office or call 303-659-0525, Ext. 2.
