Mesa and Montrose Counties have been designated a disaster area due to freezing temperatures that occurred in April 7 and April 8, 2012. Delta, Garfield, Gunnison, Ouray, Pitkin and San Miguel Counties are included as contiguous counties which are eligible for Farm Service Agency emergency loans.
Low interest emergency loans are available to operators of family-size farms/ranches that are unable to obtain credit elsewhere. Loans are based on production losses caused by the disaster. Producers must file an application for an emergency loan through the Farm Service Agency by March 25.
Each application will be considered on its own merit, taking into account the extent of losses, security available, repayment ability and other eligibility requirements.
