FSA Announces Final 2019 and 2020 WHIP+ PaymentMon, 08 Nov 2021 14:53:41 CST
The United States Department of Agriculture Farm Service Agency has announced a third round of payments to producers who received benefits under the 2019 and 2020 WHIP+ program. This payment will constitute the final 10 percent of an eligible producers calculated 2019 and 2020 crop WHIP+ payment.
Producers eligible for 2019 and 2020 WHIP+ program payments have previously received two rounds of payments equal to 50 percent and 40 percent of the calculated payment amount, respectively.
At the time FSA issued the second round of payments in June 2021, the Agency noted it could issue a third round of payments if sufficient funds were available after the second round of payments were completed.
In a notice published November 8, 2021 FSA advised State and County FSA offices that the WHIP+ software would be reopened for approval and distribution of the remaining 10 percent of the calculated 2019 and 2020 WHIP+ payments and County offices are authorized to certify and sign 2019 and 2020 WHIP+ payments in the National Payment System to finalize distribution of the final 10 percent payment to producers.
