USDA Announces Signup for Rice Production Program

May 12, 2023
On May 5, USDA FSA announced it will begin sending prefilled applications to rice producers for the Rice Production Program (RPP), which will provide up to $250 million in assistance to rice farmers. FSA is using the information on file with the USDA Risk Management Agency, as reported by rice producers through their insurance agents. Producers need to complete their application and return it by Monday, July 10, 2023. Initially, FSA will make a payment to eligible producers at a reduced payment rate of one cent per pound, but if funds remain, a second payment may be issued. Funding for this program was included in the fiscal year 2023 omnibus appropriations bill passed in December 2022.
