The Missouri Dairy Revitalization Act of 2015 established the Margin Insurance Premium Assistance Program to assist Missouri dairy farmers with the cost of participation in the federal Margin Protection Program which was created in the federal Farm Bill of 2014. This program allows Missouri dairy farmers who participate in the federal margin protection program to apply to MASBDA for reimbursement of 70 percent of their federal premium.

The Premium Assistance Program is administered by the Missouri Agricultural and Small Business Development Authority (MASBDA) within the Missouri Department of Agriculture.

Due to State of Missouri budget constraints, the Premium Assistance Program will not receive funding in the near future. This page will be updated if there are any changes to the funding status for this program. For more information, please contact MASBDA at (573) 751-2129 or email masbda@mda.mo.gov.
