Oregon Department of Agriculture

The Oregon Department of Agriculture (ODA) launches the Oregon Disaster Assistance Program (ODAP) for farmers and ranchers who suffered financial losses during one or more of the natural disasters that hit Oregon in 2021. The $40 million program includes forgivable loans for eligible farmers.

ODAP applications are available through a participating lending institution near you. ODAP will be administered by four chosen lenders familiar with agriculture. Lenders who are accepting applications:

  • Umpqua Bank 
  • Columbia Bank 
  • Bank of Eastern Oregon 
  • Old West Federal Credit Union

Applications will be available until June 3, 2022, when assistance will begin to be processed. Based on available funds, ODAP may conduct a second round of applications.
