Wisconsin direct payment application deadline arrives


Wisconsin direct payment application deadline arrives

Monday, June 29th is the last day Wisconsin farmers can apply for the state’s coronavirus direct payments program.

Governor Tony Evers took a recommendation from Wisconsin farm organizations and set 50-million dollars from the federal CARES Act for the Farm Support Program, which will pay between $1,000 and $3,500 dollars to applicants on a sliding scale in mid-July.

As of last Tuesday, 10,000 of the estimated 26,000 eligible farmers had applied for the funding.

Online applications can be filled out until 11:59 pm at the Wisconsin Department of Revenue’s website here or by telephone at (608) 266-2772.
