With the 1-year anniversary of the flooding that hit our region in 2023, and the new storm event that occurred on July 10th and 11th this year, the Agriculture Recovery Task Force is seeking feedback from farmers who were impacted by the 2023 flooding and updates on the status of their farm businesses now.  If you are at all able to help with this information, it will help the Agency and its partners address policy concerns addressing these events that are likely to occur again.  Please complete this survey by 5pm, August 31st.  Thanks you and take care.

Please click here to take the 5 minute survey.

**PLEASE NOTE: If you have experienced flood-related damages starting on July 10, 2024, the JULY 2024 FLOODING LOSS & DAMAGE SURVEY will be released very soon. The DISASTER RECOVERY GAPS SURVEY is not where you would capture new losses due to this most recent storm.
