USDA-FSA Wildfire Hurricane Indemnity Program (WHIP) meetings

Tuesday, June 26th, 2018 by tamara

Dear Florida Citrus Industry:

Florida Citrus Mutual is working with the Gulf Citrus Growers Association, the Highlands County Citrus Growers Association, the Indian River Citrus League and the Peace River Valley Citrus Growers Association to host four area meetings to introduce the 2018 WHIP which is designed to get citrus growers financial assistance in the wake of Hurricane Irma. The scheduled and agenda are attached. The meeting agenda and subsequent questions are to discuss citrus losses only.

Florida Citrus Mutual and our regional organizations STRONGLY recommend all growers attend one of the meetings. Although attendance is not mandatory the meetings will provide an excellent opportunity for growers to organize their thoughts on the WHIP application process.

Keep in mind, we anticipate that FSA will START ACCEPTING applications by July 16.

If you have any questions about the meeting please reach out to Andrew Meadows at andrewm@flcitrusmutual.com or 863-682-1111

See you soon,

Mike
