The U.S. Department of Agriculture has issued a Disaster Designation for Elko, Eureka, Lander, and White Pine counties due to drought conditions. This designation provides agriculture operations within the contiguous Nevada counties of Churchill, Humboldt, Lincoln, Nye, and Pershing with access to disaster assistance through the USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA).
This assistance includes access to emergency FSA loans. If assistance has been received from CARES/CFAP funding, producers are still eligible for disaster assistance through FSA.
For more information regarding qualifications and specifications of emergency assistance please contact the Nevada State Farm Service Agency at (775) 857-8500.
