Please share with any Young Farmer Programs or farmers in your communities. Georgia Development Authority has developed the Safety 21 Loan Program to help with bridging the gap.

The SAFETY 21 Loan Program provides secured loans to farmers with funds to be used to bridge the income gap resulting from losses attributed to Hurricane Michael until federal disaster relief payments are made.

There are three forms required to complete an application package:

  1. Production Loss Verification Form - this form will need to be filled out either by one of our loan specialists or a crop insurance agent or a county extension agent or by FSA.
  2. Operating Credit Continuity Agreement - this agreement must be filled out by your Operating Credit Provider.
  3. Safety 21 Loan Program Application - this form must be filled out completely.

Once these 3 items have been completed, they may be submitted via email to [log in to unmask] or faxed to 770-207-4257 or mailed to Georgia Development Authority ATTN: Anita Daniel 1890 Hwy 138, Monroe, GA 30655. Please be sure to save a copy of each for your records.
