Aid Available for Farmers Impacted by Natural Disasters

Farmers: If you’ve suffered production and income losses due to natural disasters in the last two years, this video has important information you should know! You may qualify for a payment through the Emergency Relief Program (ERP) Phase 2 program.

The deadline to apply for ERP Phase 2 is June 2, 2023.

Learn more in this webinar

In this webinar recording, join Farm Aid and our partners at Farmers’ Legal Action Group (FLAG), National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition (NSAC), Land Loss Prevention Project (LLPP) and the Rural Coalition to get the info you need. It was recorded on May 18 .

Opportunities for support from USDA and FSA too often leave out farmers who need it the most. This information is needed to help farmers make an informed decision as to their eligibility and the application process. This also creates an opportunity for those who have not previously applied for funds a chance to gain access to future USDA and FSA funding opportunities!
