NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The LSU AgCenter is holding an in-person and online meeting Thursday morning for southeastern Louisiana producers who suffered agricultural losses from Hurricane Ida.
AgCenter agent Anna Timmerman says state and federal help is available.
Up to 50 people can attend in person at the New Orleans Botanical Garden Garden Study Center. The 10 a.m. meeting also will be recorded and streamed online through Microsoft Teams.
The meeting is for landowners, farmers and producers in Orleans, Jefferson, St. Bernard, Plaquemines, St. Charles and surrounding parishes. Supporting documents and paperwork will be emailed to online participants.
Representatives from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Farm Service Agency and for Natural Resources Conservation Service recovery programs will provide information on federal farm aid.
Several local nonprofit agencies also will have program information available.
