Intertribal Agriculture Council Aids in Accessing Discrimination Settlement Funds
Abi Fain with the Intertribal Agriculture Council says it [DFAP] applies to people who were discriminated against when they filed for USDA farm lending programs.
“For a lot of producers, it’s going to be some much-needed relief. Being in farming or ranching is incredibly expensive,” Fain said.
She says those who were awarded assistance through past programs are not disqualified from applying for DFAP and those who qualify should still file a claim.
“There have been a number of settlements like Keepseagle and folks who participated in those whether they received an award or didn’t are still eligible to participate in this program,” Fain said.
