FSA announces drought assistance available for livestock producers


Adrian J. Polansky, state executive director of USDA's Farm Service Agency in Kansas, announced that drought assistance is available for livestock producers affected by drought in all Kansas counties except Republic. Eligibility to request to implement ECP is based on the County Committee providing evidence that the county is designated as level D3, Drought Extreme according to the U.S. Drought Monitor or providing evidence of a 40 percent or greater loss of normal precipitation for the 4 most recent months.

Producers may request assistance in approved counties by filing an application for cost-share assistance under the Emergency Conservation Program from Oct. 15 through Nov. 15 at their local Farm Service Agency. ECP is being implemented to assist in providing access to water because of extended period of severe drought. The damage must be of such magnitude that it would be too costly for the producer to rehabilitate without federal assistance.

Participants can receive cost-share assistance of up to 75 percent of the cost for temporary measures and 50 percent of the cost for permanent measures for approved emergency conservation practices. Practices approved are EC6, Drought Measures (e.g., constructing and deepening wells, installing pipe to another source of water because primary source is inadequate) and EC7, Hauling Water for Livestock (e.g., hauling water, tanks and troughs).

ECP has been approved for implementation by the National office without an ECP fund allocation therefore FSA will be accepting applications for which funds are not currently available. ECP funding is limited and should funds become available, the national office will give priority to permanent measures.
