21 Pennsylvania Counties Eligible for Aid From US Dept of Agriculture
Twenty-one Pennsylvania counties including McKean, are eligible for aid from the United States Department of Agriculture. Freezing temps from March through May destroyed crops setting farmers back at a crucial time in the growing season. US Senator Bob Casey announced the aid, which includes emergency loans and other measures that will cover production and other expenses that the freeze cost farmers in the region.
