DATCP has released the details of the “Wisconsin Farm Support Program” – Direct Aid Payments for Farmers, which is a direct payment available to eligible farmers that uses $50 million of the funding that Wisconsin received under the federal CARES Act.  

This program will provide between $1,000 and $3,500 in direct cash payments to eligible farmers to assist them with the economic impacts resulting from the coronavirus pandemic. Eligible farmers must have at least $35,000 in gross farm income but not more than $5 million in gross farm income in 2019. Payment will be determined on a sliding scale based on 2019 gross receipts. Applications for funds will be accepted from June 15 through June 29 using an online application through the Wisconsin Department of Revenue.
