Emergency Relief Program (ERP) Resources

To help agricultural producers offset the impacts of natural disasters in 2020 and 2021, Congress included emergency relief funding in the Extending Government Funding and Delivering Emergency Assistance Act (P.L. 117-43). This Act includes $10 billion in assistance to agricultural producers impacted by wildfires, droughts, hurricanes, winter storms and other eligible disasters experienced during the calendar years 2020 and 2021. Additionally, this law targets at least $750 million for livestock producers impacted by drought or wildfires.

USDA continues to develop the programs, policies and provisions required to distribute these payments to producers hard-hit by catastrophic disaster events in the past two years. USDA will keep producers and stakeholders informed as program details are available.

Funds will be distributed through the Emergency Livestock Relief Program (ELRP) and the Emergency Relief Program (ERP).
