Areas in Alaska Eligible for Emergency Loans Following Presidential Disaster Declaration

 
Primary area North Slope Borough and contiguous areas Northwest Arctic Borough and Yukon-Koyukuk Census Area were declared disasters due to a severe storm that occurred on August 27, 2015. Under this designation, producers with operations in any primary or contiguous county are eligible to apply for low interest emergency loans.

 
Emergency loans help producers recover from production and physical losses due to drought, flooding and other natural disasters or quarantine.

 
Producers have eight months from the date of the declaration to apply for emergency loan assistance. FSA will consider each loan application on its own merits, taking into account the extent of losses, security available and repayment ability. Producers can borrow up to 100 percent of actual production or physical losses, to a maximum amount of $500,000.

 
For more information about emergency loans, please contact your local FSA office or visit www.fsa.usda.gov.

Farm Service Agency Farm Loans

 
Are you a farmer or rancher who has substantially participated in a farming operation for at least three but no more than 10 years? Or are you a woman or minority-owned agricultural business? If so, you may qualify for beginning farmer or socially disadvantaged targeted loan funds with the Farm Service Agency. The USDA/Farm Service Agency makes both direct and guaranteed farm ownership and operating loans to family-size farmers and ranchers who cannot obtain financing from commercial credit sources. FSA loans can be used to purchase land, livestock, equipment, feed, seed and supplies. The loans can also be used to construct buildings or make farm improvements.

 
If you believe this program could be of benefit to you, please contact the Farm Service Agency Northern County Office at (907) 895-4242 or call (907) 761-7754 to reach the Southern County Office for more information. FSA loan officials will be happy to arrange an appointment to meet with you and discuss your options.

 
USDA is an equal opportunity lender and provider.
