Livestock Forage Disaster Program

Deadline Information:
Applications must be submitted within 30 days after the end of the calendar year in which the grazing loss occurred.

The Livestock Forage Disaster Program (LFP), administered by the Farm Service Agency (FSA), offers financial support to livestock producers who experience grazing losses due to qualifying drought conditions or fire on federally managed rangelands. The program is designed to help producers recover from significant forage losses, ensuring the continuity of their operations and the well-being of their livestock. LFP provides payments to eligible producers to compensate for lost grazing opportunities and to help cover additional feed costs incurred due to the disaster.
