Nebraska Cattlemen Disaster Relief Fund Accepting Applications

Nebraska Cattlemen Disaster Relief Fund is accepting applications from cattle producers impacted by the mid-March winter storm that brought a blizzard and flooding. ( Nebraska Cattlemen )

Applications are being accepted by the Nebraska Cattlemen Disaster Relief Fund for producers in the state who were impacted by Winter Storm Ulmer/Bomb Cyclone that happened in mid-March.

Eligibility for the relief program is being offered to any cattle producer with an operation located in a county or tribal area falling under an emergency or disaster declaration made by the Nebraska Governor or Nebraska Emergency Management Agency (NEMA).

Applicants must also “demonstrate genuine need or distress as a result of the disaster by providing relevant asset information and certifying their assets are not sufficient or adequate to rebuild from the damage suffered.”

While the relief fund is being offered by the Nebraska Cattlemen, membership is not a requirement for eligibility to receive aid.

A committee selected by the Nebraska Cattlemen Disaster Relief Fund Board of Directors will review submitted applications on an individual basis. The goal of the fund is to distribute as much of the charitable impact as possible to Nebraska cattle producers.

A total amount of relief funds for each applicant will be determined after the application period ends. The review committee reserves the right to reject any and all applications for any reason.

Applications must be completed and have all required documentation to be considered.
Applications for relief must be postmarked by May 31, 2019. No application will be considered if postmarked after that date.

Donations to the fund will continue to be accepted until May 31, 2019.

Completed applications must be mailed to 4611 Cattle Drive, Lincoln, NE 68521 or scanned and e-mailed to [email protected]

The application can be found here.
