Welcome! If you grow forage for livestock and have recently gone through drought, this website can help you find out whether you qualify for assistance. Qualifying for assistance is based on the U.S. Drought Monitor and on your county’s designated grazing periods. To use this tool, you will need to know your county’s grazing period. If you are not sure what it is, please consult your local Farm Service Agency representative.

The FSA Eligibility Tool does not guarantee any financial aid. It simply estimates which U.S. counties meet the criteria, based on the U.S. Drought Monitor. Eligibility will be confirmed by the FSA once the signup period has begun. Please contact your local FSA agent for more details and to verify eligbility after the start of the signup period.
