FSA Reminds Producers of Deadline for Emergency Assistance Program

EAST LANSING, January 21, 2011 – Christine White, Executive Director of USDA’s Farm Service Agency (FSA) in Michigan, reminds producers they have until Monday, January 31, 2011, to submit an application for payment under the 2010 Emergency Assistance for Livestock, Honey Bees, and Farm-raised Fish Program (ELAP).

ELAP provides emergency assistance to eligible producers of livestock, honeybees and farm-raised fish who have losses due to disease, adverse weather or other conditions, including losses due to blizzards, wildfires, and livestock losses due to wolf depredation. 

"With such a short window remaining to file applications, it is imperative any producer who may have suffered a loss visit their local FSA county office", said White.

ELAP assistance is for losses not covered under other disaster assistance programs established by the 2008 Farm Bill.

Producers who feel they have suffered a qualifying loss are encouraged to file an application for the 2010 ELAP. Contact their local County FSA Office for more information regarding ELAP or visit our website at www.fsa.usda.gov/mi.
