While there’s still no word on disaster funds to help the state of Wyoming pay for the measures they took this spring to offset the effects of flooding, Department of Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack has declared several counties in Idaho disaster areas – including Fremont County.  Based on that declaration, Teton County, Idaho and Teton County, Wyoming qualify for disaster aid as a contiguous disaster county.  In a letter addressed to Idaho Governor Butch Otter, Vilsack explained that his department had reviewed the loss assessment reports for all the eligible counties and determined there were sufficient agricultural losses in twelve counties to be considered primary natural disaster areas.   As such, both Teton Counties qualify for assistance from the Farm Service Agency including emergency loans to farmers and ranchers.  Applications for assistance will be accepted in 2012.
