Senior Farmer’s Market Voucher Distribution

Connections Area Agency is pleased to announce that the state is continuing the Farmers Market voucher program for older Iowans.  With this program, seniors meeting income requirements can obtain vouchers that they can use at participating area Farmers Markets to buy $30.00 worth of fresh, locally grown produce. 

This year we will be asking individuals to call in to request an application starting 05/02/2022 to 800-432-9209 x8888 and leave a message with their name and phone number.  All calls will be returned within five business days in the order they are received.  Applications will then be mailed out every Thursday with an addressed return envelope.  Once we receive completed applications, vouchers will be mailed out to applicant starting on 06/01/2022.  Please note applications not completed will not receive vouchers until all information is provided.

Program Criteria:

Annual income must be less than

$25,142          Single

$33,874          Married

When a staff member returns your call, please indicate whether you are applying as an individual or a married couple.

Outline of Process:

Starting May 2, 2022, Connections Farmers Market line open for applicants to leave their name and number for an application call back.

PLEASE LEAVE ONLY ONE MESSAGE PER INDIVIDUAL OR COUPLE. DO NOT LEAVE MORE THAN ONE MESSAGE. MULTIPLE CALLS WILL ONLY DELAY APPLICATION PROCESS.

All calls will be returned within five business days.

Applications will be mailed out on Thursdays of each week.

This method is the only way to obtain Farmers’ Market vouchers in 2022.

Thank you for your cooperation!
