The STAR Fund (State of Texas Agriculture Relief Fund) was created solely with monetary donations from private individuals and companies, including Farm Credit, Valero and McCoy’s Building Supply. STAR Fund money may be used to assist farmers and ranchers in rebuilding fences, restoring operations and paying for other agricultural disaster relief. As natural disasters continue to impact Texas farmers and ranchers, the need for donations continues.
In addition to the activities listed above, other potentially eligible projects may be used for replacing feed, hay, barns or debris removal. Applications MUST be received by close of business sixty (60) business days after the Texas Governor’s declaration of disaster for the county in which assistance is sought. Please see TDA’s website for a complete listing of eligible counties and deadlines.
