USDA Designates 11 Washington Counties as Primary Disaster Areas

Secretary Vilsack declared 22 counties in Washington State as primary and contiguous disaster areas due to excessive heat that occurred between March 15, 2023 and July 31, 2023. A Secretarial disaster designation allows farmers and ranchers in primary and contiguous disaster counties to be considered for emergency loans through the Farm Service Agency (FSA), provided all other eligibility requirements are met. Farmers in eligible counties have until November 14, 2024 to apply.
