Johnston and Cumberland are the only counties included in the declaration issued by Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack.
Farmers who may be eligible for assistance because of the April tornado damage may get information about the program through the Moore-Montgomery office of the USDA’s Farm Service Agency, which is located at 707 Pinehurst Ave., Carthage.
Sept. 10 is the deadline to file an application.
