Assistance available for flood damaged ag land in Texas

The USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) in Texas, has established two special Environmental Quality incentive Programs (EQIP) sign-ups to help farmers and ranchers who suffered damage to working lands and livestock mortality resulting from Hurricane Harvey. EQIP is available for necessary repairs caused by high winds, rainfall and flood waters. The second EQIP special enrollment specific to agricultural livestock mortality and carcass disposal is open and available to immediately assist ranchers in the disposal of livestock carcasses. This special sign-up ends September 22, 2017.
