Can I take a picture of my documents and upload the picture?
Yes, but you must make sure your documents clearly show the date of the delivery and that the grain was delivered to Mayfield Grain Company. Partial or unclear documents will slow down processing.
Please upload additional documentation or add comments to clarify any information submitted such as partnership agreements or the location of your farm (if different from the business address.)
I am a local farmer and delivered grain to the Mayfield Grain Company in 2021, but my state ID is not from Kentucky. Can I still apply?
The state ID is being requested to verify the applicant’s identity. Only Kentucky residents are eligible for assistance.
Are the landlord and the farmer/producer both eligible for assistance?
The Graves County Grain Assistance Program was established to provide assistance to local farmers for their additional transportation costs due to the loss of the Mayfield Grain Company grain elevator as a result of the severe weather events of December 10-11, 2021. Since landlords will not directly incur additional transportation costs, only the farmer/producer are eligible for assistance.
I have a partnership farming arrangement. Are all partners eligible for assistance? If so, should one partner apply or should all partners apply?
All partners are eligible to apply. Each partner should apply separately and indicate their portion of the delivery on the delivery sheet
The program guidelines require applicants, who receive assistance from the fund, to upload 2022 documentation of crop delivery by December 31, 2022. I won’t completely deliver my crop by the end of the year, will this affect my award?
The documentation (delivery sheets, or ticket summaries) to be uploaded on or before December 31, 2022, is being required in order to verify 1) that the applicant remains in operation for Calendar Year 2022, and 2) that farming operations for 2022 were comparable to 2021. We are mindful there are variables concerning when crops are harvested, delivered, and in types of crop. Minor variations between 2021 and 2022 harvests will not impact eligibility for an award.
How will I receive payment?
Checks will be issued directly to farmers who qualify. Please ensure all mailing and business information is correct on your application to receive prompt payment. Award recipients will be required to supply documentation of the delivery of your 2022 crop by December 31, 2022.
If my claim is denied, can I appeal?
Awards from the WKY Tornado Relief Fund Program are made purely as a matter of grace. As such, no appeals shall be accepted from an applicant to the WKY Tornado Relief Fund Program.
Is there a deadline to apply?
The application portal will close at 4pm EDT on August 15, 2022
Who can I contact if I have questions about my account?
