On July 7, 2023, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced that the USDA Discrimination Financial Assistance Program (DFAP) was open. FLAG has created a brief Guide and a longer Guide to this program. This third edition of the brief guide highlights two extended deadlines: Deadline for farmers to apply for the program is now January 13, 2024; and the deadline to request USDA documents as part of their applications is November 3rd, 2023. This edition of the Brief Farmers’ Guide replaces earlier Brief Farmers’ Guides that FLAG previously had on our website.
A more comprehensive Farmers’ Guide, which looks at the details of DFAP, is also available on FLAG’s website.
