Farm Service Agency Administrator Zach Ducheneaux tells the Red River Farm Network the second phase of the Emergency Relief Program and the Emergency Livestock Relief Program will be rolled out at the same time, likely this fall. The details of phase two of ERP builds off of phase one. “The first part of Phase One we used information from the Risk Management Agency, the second part of Phase One included assistance with non-insured disaster assistance program indemnities through FSA.” As these two components were rolled out, USDA learned it had a 2019 cause of loss that continued into 2020, but it was only categorized as a 2019 cause of loss. “That didn’t help and that’s the third part of Phase One.” Ducheneaux says prevent plant issues are expected to be addressed at the same time.
