USDA announced that assistance is available for communities and agricultural producers affected by the severe weather and tornado that tore through Mississippi on March 25, 2023. In addition to crop insurance, the Noninsured Crop Disaster Assistance Program (NAP) is available.
Underserved producers with a CCC-860 on file prior to the closing date will automatically receive basic coverage for any NAP-eligible crops if they file a notice of loss and apply for program benefits. For livestock producers, the Livestock Indemnity Program and the Emergency Assistance for Livestock, Honeybee, and Farm-raised Fish Program may apply. Other relevant programs may be the Tree Assistance Program, the Emergency Conservation Program, or the Emergency Forest Restoration Program.
