USDA Market Facilitation Program
The last day to stop in and sign the Market Facilitation Program (MFP) application has been changed to February 14, due to offices being closed.  You don’t need to certify production at that time, but if you don’t sign the application by February 14 you will not be eligible for MFP payments.  Once you sign the application, you have until May 1 to prove production.
