Emergency Farm Loans
____________________________________________________

 

 
USDA's Farm Service Agency (FSA) provides Emergency loans to help producers who own or operate located in a county declared by the President or designated by the Secretary of Agriculture as a primary disaster area or quarantine area. All counties contiguous to the declared, designated, or quarantined primary counties also are eligible for Emergency loans. To find out if your area has an active disaster declaration, click here

 
Emergency loan funds may be used to:

 
  • Restore or replace essential property
  • Pay all or part of production costs associated with the disaster year
  • Pay essential family living expenses
  • Reorganize the farming operation
  • Refinance certain debts, excluding real estate

 
The maximum loan amount for an Emergency loan is $500,000.

 
We encourage you to contact your local office or USDA Service Center to learn more about our programs and the information you will need for a complete application.
