Drought Assistance Program Information and Resources:

Agricultural operations in Wisconsin are experiencing severe and worsening drought conditions. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has technical and financial assistance available to help farmers and livestock producers recover. Impacted producers should contact their local USDA Service Center to report losses and learn more about program options available to assist in their recovery from crop, land, infrastructure and livestock losses and damages.

Programs Include: CRP Emergency Haying and Grazing, Emergency Assistance for Livestock, Honeybees, and Farm-Raised Fish (ELAP), Emergency Loans, and the Livestock Forage Disaster Program (LFP).  Please use the links below to identify if your operation is located in an eligible county.  If you are interested in assistance under these programs,  please contact your local USDA Service Center.
