USDA Offers Funds to Help Producers with Infrastructure Repairs Along the Border

USDA is offering financial assistance to help producers with infrastructure repairs along the southern border. The funding aims to reimburse Texas farmers suffering from property damage due to the influx of illegal immigration.

U.S. Congressman Tony Gonzalez spoke with RFD-TV’s Janet Adkison about how the funds will be used, how much of a need there is for this program, what type of damage there was to farm property, who all is eligible and what they need to do.
