Deadline draws near to apply for South Carolina Farm Aid Funding... Farmers who suffered crop loss due to last year’s flood have less than a month remaining to apply for South Carolina Farm Aid grants through the South Carolina Department of Agriculture. The deadline for applying is August 15, 2016 and applications can be found here. The SC Chamber was a staunch advocate for Farm Aid this legislative session and encourages all farmers to take advantage of this opportunity to get back on their feet.
