  • The applicant must be in compliance with highly erodible land and wetland conservation provisions.
  • The individual or entity may not be eligible due to the Adjusted Gross Income provisions.

  • All individual producers, entities, or other applications with multiple beneficiaries will provide tax identification codes and social security numbers at the time of application for purposes of monitoring payment limitations.
  • Entities which do not provide the social security numbers of all members of the entity and embedded entities are not eligible to participate.
