This week Governor Rauner received approval of his request to declare many Illinois counties, including McLean and Livingston, Agricultural Disaster Areas due to crop losses caused by the recent rain and flooding.
Area farmers who believe they may be eligible for assistance should contact their county Farm Service Agency office. Loan applications will be considered on a case-by-case basis. If you have questions you should contact the state FSA office at 217.241.6600. You can get more information here.
