Storms and heavy rainfall have triggered heavy flooding in Arkansas. Hundreds of thousands of acres of cropland and pasture, as well as livestock, have been damaged or destroyed. A levee failure in Pocahontas caused flash flooding on May 3, 2017, and as massive amounts of water move downstream it will continue to cause significant flooding.
Some Farm Service Agency (FSA) programs available to assist in times such as these include the Emergency Conservation Program (ECP), and Livestock Indemnity Program (LIP), as well as the Non-Insured Crop Disaster Assistance Program (NAP). It is important that you contact your local FSA Office for more information about these programs.
