Public Notice:

On Tuesday, August 4, 2020 the State of Delaware was hit with a 29-mile long tornado that sustained damage throughout the state. As the counties are still assessing damaged areas, we understand that there has been and may continue to be areas/property damage identified from the tornado.

In accordance with Conservation Programs Manual Policy 440 Part 530.64, modifications can be initiated when circumstances are beyond the participants control (such as natural disaster). As such, funding may be available to producers who may have been impacted by the storm in which practices have been damaged or destroyed beyond reasonable repair.

In the event that our growers have experienced damage due to the storm/tornado, the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), can provide funds to address the current conservation practices that were installed by NRCS and are within their current practice lifespan.

Producers that are interested in an assessment of the damage impacts on NRCS installed practices should contact their local USDA Service Center no later than September 30, 2020.
