The United States Department of Agriculture has announced $2.7 million in Emergency Conservation Program funding for North Carolina farmers to remove debris, restore fences and conservation structures and grade and shape farmland damaged by last year's Hurricane Isabel that hit the northeastern part of the state. The funds will be applied to the eligible applications already received from producers since the ECP sign-up period relating to Hurricane Isabel has ended. In June 2004, the USDA provided North Carolina with nearly $1.9 million in ECP funds. The state has so far received $4.6 million in assistance for the hurricane.
