USDA staff members are currently conducting damage assessments on farms in partnership with the State of Vermont to determine what type of assistance can be provided to farmers who have suffered damage to their land as well as crop and animal losses. Even if a farmer has not participated in USDA program before, they may be eligible for some types of disaster assistance.

While we have been in contact with many Vermont farmers, we want to reach everyone who has been affected by the storm.
