Home > News > USDA to Mail Additional ERP Applications to Eligible Producers Soon

USDA announced another phase in supporting crop producers impacted by natural disasters in 2020 and 2021. More than 18,000 U.S. crop producers will receive new or updated applications to offset eligible crop losses.

This installment comes after $6.4 billion has already been distributed to 165,000 producers under the agency’s Emergency Relief Program (ERP). FSA will mail the pre-filled application to producers in late August who have potentially eligible losses, including those who received crop insurance indemnities for qualifying 2021 and 2021 events after May 2, 2022, including those who received crop insurance indemnities with Nursery, Supplemental Coverage Option (SCO), Stacked Income Protection Plan (STAX), Enhanced Coverage Option (ECO) and Margin Protection policies. Those receiving payments will get them direct deposited into their bank accounts within three business days after they sign, return and the application is keyed at their FSA county office.
