USDA continues its efforts to address natural disaster and pandemic-related farmer and rancher losses through two new assistance programs, the Emergency Relief Program (ERP) Phase 2 and the 2020 Pandemic Assistance Revenue Program (PARP). Both are ad-hoc, revenue-based assistance programs that rely largely on producer personal financial records as part of the application process. FSA will review what is needed to successfully apply for assistance. In addition, given the ongoing drought across Nebraska, FSA also will briefly review drought disaster programs that may be needed in 2023.
