Program Description

The MFP provides payments to cotton, corn, dairy, hog, sorghum, soybean, wheat, fresh cherry, and almond producers who have been significantly impacted by actions of foreign governments resulting in the loss of traditional exports.

Program Requirements

The MFP provides payments to cotton, corn, dairy, hog, sorghum, soybean, wheat, fresh cherry, and almond producers.
Eligible producers should apply after harvest is complete, as payments will only be issued once production is reported.
MFP payments are limited to a combined $125,000 for corn, cotton, sorghum, soybeans, wheat, fresh cherries, and almonds capped per person or legal entity. MFP payments are also limited to a combined $125,000 for dairy and hog producers. Applicants must also have an average adjusted gross income for tax years 2014, 2015, and 2016 of less than $900,000. Applicants must also comply with the provisions of the Highly Erodible Land and Wetland Conservation regulations.

Only producers of corn, cotton, sorghum, soybeans, wheat, dairy, hogs, shelled almonds, and fresh sweet cherries are eligible for the Market Facilitation Program at this time.

Producers also must meet the following criteria:

  • Have an ownership interest in the commodity and be actively engaged in farming
  • Have an average adjusted gross income or AGI for tax years 2014, 2015, and 2016 of less than $900,000 per year
  • Comply with the provisions of the “Highly Erodible Land and Wetland Conservation” regulations, often called the conservation compliance provisions
  • Provide verifiable and reliable production records by crop, type, practice, intended use, and acres if requested by the Farm Service Agency
