California avocado growers affected by the recent heavy rains and flooding are reminded that the California Farm Service Agency (FSA) offers disaster assistance and low-interest loan programs to assist growers with their recovery efforts.

Assistance programs include:

  • Tree Assistance Program — offers financial assistance for qualifying tree losses due to natural disaster
  • Emergency Loan Program — low-interest loans to help growers recover from losses due to drought/flooding, available in counties under a primary or contiguous Secretarial Disaster designation
  • Emergency Conservation Program— provides emergency funding to rehabilitate land damaged by natural disaster (includes fence loss)

Complete information about FSA assistance programs is available online.
