Resources for Farmers Affected by the Midwest Floods

Record rainfall, flooding and wind damage are punishing farmers across the Midwest, with fields and livestock under standing water. For some family farmers and ranchers already teetering on the edge from low prices and an ongoing trade war, this latest disaster is the last thing they need.

If you’ve been impacted by this recent disaster, there are a number of national and state assistance programs that can provide support. Please look through the list below, expertly curated by the National Farmers Union, whose Farm Crisis Center is a good starting point.

Please also take a look at our Resource Guide for Disaster Assistance, which covers everything from who to contact, to what to document if you’ve been impacted by a disaster.

Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma, and South Dakota
