Emergency Conservation Program Cost Share To Help With Flood Damage

Timothy K. Kennemer, county executive director for the USDA’s Farm Service Agency (FSA) in Douglas County announced the ECP (Emergency Conservation Program), for damage caused by the recent flash flooding in eastern Douglas county.
Affected producers can request cost share at the office to replace destroyed permanent fences, as well as debris and gravel removal from fields. Producers must replace fencing or remove debris at their own expense, and could be cost shared after a field visit to determine eligibility.
Funds have not been allocated to this disaster. All requests must be evaluated before funds can be requested. The sign up period for the ECP Program is now through Oct. 4 at 1401 NW 10th Ave. in Ava.
For more information please call the FSA office at 1-417-683-4212 x2 or 1-800-434-0366 x2.
