Disaster Assistance for Agricultural Producers

Hurricane KatrinaBelow we offer numerous links to NCAT and ATTRA resources, federal and state resources, nonprofit groups, aid organizations, and publications focusing on assistance available to farmers and the rural poor in the wake of hurricanes, floods, droughts, or other natural disasters.

NCAT and ATTRA Resources

  • Drought Presentations and Resource Guide - Three PowerPoint presentations focus on how to manage your cropland, pastures, or rangeland in good years, in order to minimize the impacts of drought when it occurs. Another three presentations discuss management practices that may be used during or following a drought. The Resource Guide provides a comprehensive text and Web-based materials, listed according to topics covered in the PowerPoint presentations.
  • Building Sustainable Places - This extensive directory of federal programs that offer assistance in sustainable agriculture, forestry, conservation, and community development is written for anyone seeking help to foster innovative enterprises in agriculture and forestry in the U.S.
  • Operation Fresh Start - A project of NCAT, this Web site is designed to empower individuals and communities as they recover from natural disasters by providing resources and tools that can help rebuild communities, businesses, and homes using sustainable principles and technologies.
  • Sustainable Agriculture Organizations and Publications - This list of sustainable agriculture grassroots groups, nonprofits, and agencies is updated annually. State-by-state contacts for a broadly defined sustainable agriculture community are included to facilitate networking.
