Farmers in Mahoning and Columbiana counties can apply for help after record rains threatened crops.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture has made disaster relief funds available for Ohio farmers in certain counties hit by natural disasters in 2018 and 2019.  

The money comes from the Wildfire and Hurricane Indemnity Program Plus (WHIP+), which assists with losses from hurricanes, wildfires, and other natural disasters.

Through the program, those eligible can receive things such as additional prevented planting related payments, according to the USDA.

Anyone interested in applying can start on Wednesday, September 11. You can click here for more information.
