More funding for drought relief available to North Dakota producers

Local News

More help is coming to North Dakota producers, as Sen. John Hoeven secured more funding for drought relief.

Hoeven visited Burlington on Wednesday alongside Sen. Kevin Cramer and North Dakota Ag Commissioner Doug Goehring to make the announcement.

The Emergency Assistance for Livestock Program has expanded to cover the costs of transporting feed.

Producers will be reimbursed 60 percent of the feed transportation costs, in addition to the water transportation costs they were already receiving.

The funding expansion aims to cover transportation costs dating back to the beginning of this year.

“It is a tough drought. It’s a tough go for our farmers, particularly a tough go for our livestock producers and ranchers,” said Hoeven. “This is important help for them.”

The deadline to file an application to receive payment for the 2021 program year is Jan. 31, 2022.
