ERP Phase Two Highlights

  • What’s Covered: ERP Phase Two payments cover crop losses to crops, trees, bushes, and vines for commodity and specialty crop producers affected by natural disasters including wildfires, droughts, hurricanes, winter storms, and more during eligible calendar years.
  • How Payments are Calculated: Phase Two payments target producers not included in Phase One payments, who had production and quality losses that resulted in a decrease in gross revenue. This, taken into account with other federal program payments, determines up to a maximum initial payment of $2,000.
  • Eligibility: Eligible producers must have suffered a loss of an eligible crop due to a qualifying disaster event that occurred in the 2020 or 2021 calendar year and resulted in a decrease of allowable gross revenue.
  • Applications: FSA is accepting applications for ERP Phase Two now through June 2, 2023. Refer your customers to their FSA county office for next steps.
