Nearly 2,500 agricultural producers and beekeepers will begin receiving disaster assistance from the Emergency Assistance for Livestock, Honeybees and Farm-Raised Fish Program (ELAP). “For certain agricultural producers who raise bees, farm-raised fish and livestock, and who suffered weather or disease related losses in 2012 and 2013, these funds will help cover some of those losses,” said Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack. Funding for ELAP is limited to $20 million in any federal fiscal year. Because the number of applicants exceeded available funds, payments will be prorated to cover 90 percent of eligible losses occurring from Oct. 1, 2011, through Sept. 30, 2012, and 68 percent of eligible losses occurring from Oct. 1, 2012, through Sept. 30, 2013.
