From the Associated Press via The Denver Post:

Montrose County qualifies because it is adjacent to counties where a natural disaster has been declared because of drought. Those counties include Dolores, La Plata, Ouray, Hinsdale, Montezuma and San Miguel. More farmers and ranchers are eligible for assistance for similar proximity reasons in Archuleta, Mineral, Saguache, Gunnison and San Juan counties.
