WI Farm Support Program receives 4,672 applications, grant recipients announced
The Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection says the WI Farm Support Program received 4,672 applications as of Monday.

DATCP Secretary-designee Randy Romanski said 3,249 of those applications were already approved by the time the application window closed, since the Department of Revenue reviewed them on a rolling basis throughout the application period. Romanski said he expects that number to rise as DOR continues to work through applications.

Romanski also said 45% of all applications came from farmers in the $10,000-30,000 income range, who were not eligible to apply in the first round. He added that the funds are still expected to be handed out on a sliding scale based on income, and those payments will be disbursed in mid-September.
