The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has announced a new Livestock Indemnity Program (LIP) Decision Tool and farm loan resources available for agricultural producers looking to access USDA disaster assistance and farm loan programs. The LIP Decision Tool helps producers who suffered losses, while the optional decision tool gives the producers guidance on needed documentation.

USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) Administrator Zach Ducheneaux said, “Offering innovative tools and resources with help from our cooperators breaks down program delivery barriers ensuring equitable access to our programs for millions of rural, urban, and small-scale to mid-sized producers.”

More information about the new tool is on the FSA website.
