Producers will receive payments under Public Law 116-6, The Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2019, in the amount of $9 million, to compensate producers for revenue losses in calendar year(s) 2015 and/or 2016. Payments will assist producers that suffered revenue losses of income due to the Oriental Fruit Fly Quarantine in Miami-Dade County, Florida.
FSA is requesting EMERGENCY CLEARANCE because the USDA has directed Farm Service Agency (FSA) to implement the Oriental Fruit Fly Program (OFF) for producers of agricultural commodities who suffered a revenue loss in calendar years 2015 and/or 2016 due to the APHIS imposed quarantine in Miami-Dade County Florida, August 28, 2015 through February 13, 2016. The quarantine was necessary due to an outbreak of the Oriental Fruit Fly. The emergency approval is needed because we could not comply with the normal clearance under the Paperwork Reduction Act, and it is essential to the mission of FSA to provide financial assistance as quickly as possible to the affected producers. FSA establishes provisions for providing assistance as authorized by Section 778 of the Consolidated Appropriation Act of 2019 (Pub. L. 116-6), which appropriated $9 million to the FSA for the purpose of making payments to producers impacted by an Oriental Fruit Fly Quarantine. Funds will remain available until expended. FSA will include the implementation of a new Oriental Fruit Fly (OFF) Program under the new regulation of 7 CFR 756. OFF is being implemented through a final rule, which includes changes to FSA dairy regulations that are a priority for USDA to have in effect quickly.
