The USDA designated Clark, Meade and Seward counties as natural disaster areas for drought.

This secretarial natural disaster designation allows the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Farm Service Agency (FSA) to extend much-needed emergency credit to producers recovering from natural disasters through emergency loans.

Emergency loans can be used to meet various recovery needs including the replacement of essential items such as equipment or livestock, reorganization of a farming operation, or to refinance certain debts.

According to the U.S. Drought Monitor, these counties suffered from a drought intensity value during the growing season of 1) D2 Drought-Severe for eight or more consecutive weeks or 2) D3 Drought-Extreme or D4 Drought-Exceptional.

 

Impacted area:

Triggering Disaster: Drought beginning April 30

Application Deadline: Feb. 24, 2025

Counties: Clark, Meade, Seward
