Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack has directed the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to aid recovery efforts for residents, farmers and ranchers affected by the devastation across the Southeast caused by Tropical Storm Claudette.
USDA staff in regional, state, and county offices are ready to respond and are providing a variety of program flexibilities and other assistance to affected communities and agricultural producers.
“USDA is there to help producers and communities impacted by the severe rain and flooding from the Gulf to the Carolinas,” said Secretary Vilsack. “Visit farmers.gov or your local USDA Service Center to find out what assistance may be available to you.”
