Thompson Announces Beginning of Sign-Up for USDA Disaster Assistance Programs Restored Under Farm Bill

Encourages Eligible Farmers To Contact Local Farm Service Agency Office
To Determine Specific Documentation Requirements

Bellefonte, PA - Today, U.S. Representative Glenn 'GT' Thompson, PA-5, announced that eligible farmers can now sign up for the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) disaster assistance programs, which were restored and retroactively reauthorized by passage of the 2014 Farm Bill. Eligible producers can enroll in one of four programs administered by the Farm Service Agency (FSA).

"Eligible farmers can now apply for disaster assistance programs, including retroactive payment for losses suffered dating back to 2011,” stated Rep. Thompson. “Specific records will be needed to document losses, and application deadlines will differ depending upon the program and year of the loss, so I would encourage participants to contact their local county Farm Service Agency office as soon as possible to discuss these requirements.”

USDA disaster assistance programs under the 2014 Farm Bill:

· Livestock Forage Disaster Program (LFP): LFP provides compensation to eligible livestock producers who have suffered grazing losses due to drought or fire. The 2014 Farm Bill provides retroactive authority through the LFP to cover eligible losses back to Oct. 1, 2011. Click here to learn more.
