Indiana counties designated as natural disaster areas by USDA


On August 12, 2015, USDA designated 88 counties in Indiana as natural disaster areas due to heavy rainfall since May. The four counties not designated disaster areas are LaGrange, Perry, Spencer and Steuben. Farm operators in the ‘disaster’ counties are eligible for low interest emergency loans from the Farm Service Agency, provided they meet certain qualifications and eligibility requirements. Farmers have eight months, or until April 12, 2016, to apply for the loans. Contact your local USDA Service Center  for more information about loans and to learn about additional programs available to help recover from disaster, or visit http://disaster.fsa.usda.gov. ​
