Emergency Grain Storage Assistance Program (EGSAP)

Farm Service Agency

Closed December 29, 2023

FSA is providing $20 million in cost-share assistance to help agricultural producers in counties affected by eligible disaster events in Kentucky, Minnesota, South Dakota, Illinois, Iowa, Missouri, North Dakota, and Tennessee to rebuild storage facilities damaged by devastating natural disaster events that occurred between December 1, 2021 through August 1, 2022. 


Eligible Locations

To determine locations where producers may be eligible for emergency grain storage facility assistance, see below link for state impact area maps for Kentucky, Minnesota, South Dakota and surrounding areas. These maps depict damaged storage facility locations and counties within a 30-mile radius of these facilities where producers may be eligible to apply for EGSFP benefits.

Additionally, FSA may determine a need for EGSFP assistance in other states and regions during the application period. Eligible disaster events include hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, derechos, and winter storms.    

Impact Area Maps

Eligible Facilities

The following types of new/used facilities and upgrades are eligible for cost-share assistance and must have a useful life of at least three years: 

  • conventional-type cribs or bins designed and engineered for grain storage

  • open buildings with two end walls

  • converted storage structures,

  • asphalt, concrete or gravel floors with grain piles and tarp covering,

  • ag baggers (including bags)

On-farm grain storage structures may account for aeration, drainage, and may require loading or unloading augers, drying and handling equipment. 


FSA will use the producer’s self-certified estimated cost of the on-farm grain storage capacity or drying and handling equipment multiplied by the producer’s share of grain.  

This is the EGSFP payment, which will be multiplied by the cost share factor of 75% or 90%. An eligible producer who certifies they are socially disadvantaged, limited resource, beginning and veteran farmer or rancher filing form CCC-860 with FSA will receive 90% of the payment rate.

Application Instructions

Producers must submit the EGSFP Application, form FSA-413, to their FSA administrative office either in person, by mail, email, or facsimile by the Dec. 29, 2023, deadline.

Form FSA-413-1, Continuation Sheet for EGSFP, must be submitted with the FSA-413 when a group of producers are applying for assistance.

Contact your local FSA office to get the forms.
