Wisconsin farmers are receiving telephone calls about supposed grants from the “Federal Crop Registry.” Call recipients are left a message with a phone number to call and are told they have three days to respond to the offer. If you receive this message, take no further action. There is no “Federal Crop Registry” program. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) will not call you and offer grant money. While the USDA does provide grants, you must apply for them in writing. For more information on grant scams, review DATCP’s Government Grant Scams fact sheet at datcp.wisconsin.gov.
