Final ’20-’21 USDA disaster payments issued


The last of USDA’s Emergency Relief Program funding is being sent to producers who experienced natural disasters in 2020 and 2021.

Farm Service Agency Administrator Zach Ducheneaux says the $306 million in remaining payments will be given based on crop insurance indemnities.

Phase One of the program in 2022 distributed $7.5 billion to producers impacted by wildfires, droughts, hurricanes, winter storms, and other disasters.

Enrollment for disasters covered in 2022 remains ongoing.
