WATCH: Webinar – What is NAP and is it right for my farm?

Farming can often be unpredictable, with natural disasters, weather events, and other unforeseen circumstances affecting crop yields and production. There is funding available through the USDA to manage such risks, giving farmers some peace and assurance as they move from season to season. While the USDA offers a number of assistance programs for unplanned disasters, understanding which program might be beneficial to your farm can be an obstacle.

Below please find a recording from RAFI-USA’s Farmers of Color Network webinar exploring one of several Farm Service Agency (FSA) programs is featured below. NAP or Non-insurable Crop Disaster Assistance Program offers protection against natural disasters that lead to low crop yield, crop loss, or other negative impacts.

This webinar covers:

  • What is NAP and is it right for your farm operation?
  • What are the different types of coverage under NAP?
  • What is the cost of NAP and how do you apply?
  • What do farmers need in order to apply and stay eligible for NAP insurance?
  • What extra incentives exist for socially disadvantaged farmers who apply for NAP coverage?

Featured speaker is James A. Davis III,  North Carolina Price Support Program Chief and long-time FSA officer.

This webinar is offered through RAFI-USA’s Resources for Resilient Farmers Project which focuses on outreach and technical assistance for USDA programs that would support greater farm resilience for those within RAFI-USA’S Farmers of Color Network.

This material is based upon work supported by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, under agreement number FSA21CPT0011944.

This video preview (below) of the webinar (shown above), gives a brief introduction to NAP.
