Olympic Peninsula Conservation Programs
Emergency Assistance for Livestock, Honey Bees, and Farm-raised Fish (ELAP)
USDA Farm Service Agency
Financial assistance to eligible producers of livestock, honeybees and farm-raised fish for losses due to disease, certain adverse weather events or loss conditions, including blizzards and wildfires.
ELAP provides assistance for livestock feed and grazing losses that are not due to drought or wildfires on federally managed lands; losses resulting from the cost of transporting water to livestock due to an eligible drought; losses resulting from the additional cost associated with gathering livestock for treatment and/or inspection related to cattle tick fever, honeybee feed, colony and hive losses; and farm-raised fish feed and death losses.
Must have losses not covered by the Livestock Forage Disaster Program (LFP) and the Livestock Indemnity Program (LIP).
