Click here for all the inside skinny from the USDA:

The Wildfire and Hurricane Indemnity Program Plus (WHIP+) will provide disaster payments to producers to offset losses from hurricanes, wildfires, and other natural disasters. WHIP+ is specifically targeted to losses of crops, trees, bushes, and vines that occurred in the 2018 and 2019 calendar years.

WHIP+ builds upon the 2017 Wildfire and Hurricane Indemnity Program (2017 WHIP) to include new programs for both milk losses due to adverse weather conditions and losses to on-farm stored commodities.

Enrollment for WHIP+ will begin on September 11, 2019.
