Flood Damage

Excessive rain and/or flooding may have caused severe damage in several areas of the County.  
Farms and ranches suffering severe damage may be eligible for assistance under the Emergency Conservation Program (ECP) administered by the St. Charles/St. Louis County Farm Service Agency (FSA) if the damage:
  •  will be so costly to rehabilitate that Federal assistance is or will be needed to return the land to productive agricultural use
  • is unusual and is not the type that would recur frequently in the same area
  • affect the productive capacity of the farmland
  • will impair or endanger the land
A producer qualifying for ECP assistance may receive cost-share levels not to exceed 75 percent of the eligible cost of restoration measures. No producer is eligible for more than $200,000 cost sharing per natural disaster occurrence. The following types of measures may be eligible:

  • removing debris from farmland
  • grading, shaping, or releveling severely damaged farmland
  • restoring permanent fences
  • restoring conservation structures and other similar installations
 Sign up dates will be announced shortly.  Contact the FSA County Office with questions regarding sign up dates and eligibility. 
To be eligible for assistance, practices must not be started until all of the following are met:

  • an application for cost-share assistance has been filed
  • the local FSA County Committee (COC) or its representative has conducted an onsite inspection of the damaged area
  •  the Agency responsible for technical assistance, such as the Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS), has made a needs determination, which may include cubic yards of earthmoving, etc., required for rehabilitation
For more information about ECP, please contact the St. Charles/St. Louis County FSA Office at 636-922-2833, ext. #2 or
