The deadline for victims of the wildfires that spread across the Panhandle in March to apply for assistance through the State of Texas Agriculture Relief (STAR) Fund is July 18, 2017. TDA has extended the deadline until July to give our neighbors in need a chance to apply for assistance in rebuilding fences and restoring operations. The STAR Fund was created so that when disaster strikes, TDA is able to help farmers and ranchers in need. This is a cost-share program that is aimed at helping ag producers rebuild their operations.
