Hurricane Ian destroyed crops, buildings and infrastructure vital to the state’s agricultural economy. USDA reminds producers that technical and financial assistance is available to help recover from the disaster. Those impacted by livestock deaths may be eligible for the Livestock Indemnity Program (LIP), and those with feed and grazing losses could benefit from the Emergency Assistance for Livestock, Honeybees and Farm-Raised Fish Program (ELAP).
Tree growers, citrus producers and orchardists may be eligible for cost-share assistance through the Tree Assistance Program (TAP) to help replant or rehabilitate eligible trees, bushes or vines lost. Producers seeking assistance can learn more at farmers.gov or by contacting their local USDA service center.
To expedite recovery assistance for producers in need, RMA is authorizing emergency loss procedures to assist Florida agricultural producers with crop insurance better. Read more on those procedures here.
