ELAP Enrollment Closes Monday

     The enrollment deadline for the 2014 Emergency Assistance for Livestock, Honeybees and Farm-Raised Fish Program (ELAP) is November 3. The 2014 Farm Bill designated ELAP as a permanent disaster program and provides retroactive authority to cover losses that occurred on or after October 1, 2011.
     ELAP provides emergency assistance to eligible producers of livestock, honeybees and farm-raised fish that have losses due to disease, adverse weather or other conditions, such as blizzards and wildfires. ELAP assistance is provided for losses not covered by the Livestock Forage Disaster Program and the Livestock Indemnity Program. For 2014 program year losses, the notice of loss and an application for payment must be submitted by Nov. 3.
     Producers should contact their local Farm Service Agency office for more information or to enroll in the program.
