WASHINGTON — Farmers in Georgia who suffered losses from Hurricane Michael nearly a year ago may soon get federal money to help with recovery.
News outlets report applications opened Wednesday for farmers in roughly 80 counties. Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue announced Monday the state received $3 billion in a federal disaster aid package signed by President Donald Trump in June.
Agricultural producers who had damage to certain crops, trees, bushes or vines are eligible. Those impacted by floods, tornadoes and other disasters over the last two years, including Hurricane Dorian, can also receive aid.
Michael made landfall Oct. 10, 2018, in Florida as a powerful Category 4 storm before carving a path of destruction across southern Georgia.
