The Farm Service Agency (FSA) offers the Emergency Forest Restoration Program (EFRP) that provides disaster assistance for private non-industrial forest landowners who have incurred damage to their existing forest stands by natural disasters, including Hurricane Irma. Funding may be provided at a rate of up to 75% of the cost to implement forest restoration practices as determined by FSA county committees.
Landowners who may be interested in this assistance are encouraged to contact their local FSA office as soon as possible for additional information and to sign up for this assistance as the enrollment period is typically open for 60 days after a qualifying event.

Check with your local FSA office to find out about EFRP sign-up periods.
