SURE Program Sign-Up Opens Today

Producers who suffered crop losses due to natural disasters during the 2011 crop year can sign up for the Supplemental Revenue Assistance Payments (SURE) program beginning today, Oct. 22. The SURE program is authorized under the 2008 Farm Bill, allowing payments to be made to qualifying producers who suffered losses through Sept. 30, 2011. Losses occurring after that date do not qualify. Farmers and ranchers interested in signing up must do so before the June 7, 2013 deadline. Learn more.

    Marsha, yea no kidding! a lot of us in the Lending insdtury wish the USDA would update their eligibility map system. The one thats online is pretty archaic . Best thing to do is use their Eligibility site to make sure the home you’re looking at is eligible, and if in doubt, feel free to go to our Contact Us tab and send us the property address in question so we can double check for you. Truth be told often we have to cross reference a Google map or Mapquest image and compare it to the USDA Eligibility Map by zooming in to make sure.
