USDA Aids Hurricane Fiona Recovery Efforts

Offers assistance for farmers, ranchers, animals, and residents, particularly in Puerto Rico.

Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack has directed the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to make disaster assistance programs available for those affected by Hurricane Fiona. These programs are offered through the Farm Service Agency (FSA) and are designed to help farmers and food producers recover from natural disasters more quickly. Those that qualify for the programs can apply through their local FSA office.

“Our thoughts are with all of the people affected by this terrible storm, especially in Puerto Rico, which has come so far in recovering from Hurricane Maria,” said Secretary Vilsack. “I want everyone to know that USDA is ready to deliver all the resources we have available to us to assist those in need.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary Vilsack to be prudent in directing assistance for hurricane recovery.
  • For Administrator Zach Ducheneaux as he oversees the Farm Service Agency.
  • For the people of Puerto Rico as they continue to recover from the destruction of the hurricanes that have devastated the island territory.
