Over $4 Billion in Emergency Relief Program Funds Distributed to Farmers

On June 29th, USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack announced that American farmers have already received more than $4 billion in supplemental disaster assistance for the 2020 and 2021 crop years through the Emergency Relief Program (ERP). The amount distributed to date represents approximately 67% of the more than $6 billion projected to be paid through Phase 1 of the program. USDA mailed out pre-filled applications in late May to producers with crop insurance who suffered losses due to natural disasters in 2020 and 2021. Commodity and specialty crop producers have until July 22 to complete applications.
