As the state begins to assess the damage from Hurricane Ida, remember USDA is here to help. USDA offers technical and financial assistance to help farmers and livestock producers recover.
To better assist producers, USDA has published a brochure, Disaster Assistance Programs At A Glance. The brochure is a quick reference guide to available Farm Service Agency, Natural Resources Conservation Service and Risk Management Agency disaster assistance programs.
The brochure gives a short description of each program and lets you quickly identify which program(s) are available for each natural disaster event.
Also, on farmers.gov, you can learn about USDA disaster assistance programs that might be right for you. With the Disaster Assistance Discovery Tool, you answer five questions about the natural disasters that have impacted your operation to find out which USDA programs offer assistance.
To learn how to apply for disaster programs, contact your local USDA Service Center at farmers.gov/service-center-locator.
