Help Support the Fair Access to Agriculture Disaster Programs Act

Courtesy of NAA:

Senators Thom Tillis (R-NC) and Alex Padilla (D-CA) recently introduced bipartisan legislation to improve access to federal agriculture disaster programs. This bill will directly benefit U.S. aquaculture producers.

The Fair Access to Agriculture Disaster Programs Act (S. 2704H.R. 4127) would waive the adjusted gross income limitation for farms that derive 75% of their income from farming, ranching, or related farming practices for the following disaster programs:

  • Emergency Assistance for Livestock, Honeybees and Farm-Raised Fish Program (ELAP)
  • Noninsured Crop Disaster Assistance Program (NAP)
  • Livestock Forage Disaster Program (LFP)
  • Livestock Indemnity Program (LIP)
  • Tree Assistance Program (TAP)

Contact your Senators and ask for their Support!
