After severe storms and flooding in September, some Alaska farmers and ranchers could be eligible for disaster relief loans.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture says farmers and ranchers who suffered agricultural damages due to a combination of extreme weather like flooding, winds and landslides between Sept. 15 and Sept. 30 may be eligible for low-interest federal loans.
Applicants must be established farmers with family-sized farms.
The USDA’s Farm Service Agency will consider each loan application, taking into account the extent of losses and repayment ability.
The agency can be reached at 907-761-7772.
