Pandemic Livestock Indemnity Program
Welcome to PLIP
This Farm Service Agency website is provided for producers to apply for the Pandemic Livestock Indemnity Program (PLIP).
USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack announced the Pandemic Livestock Indemnity Program. PLIP uses funding and authorities provided in the Notice of Funds Availability, the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 (Pub. L. 116-260), and 15 U.S.C. 714b and 714c. PLIP provides direct support to producers for losses of livestock and poultry depopulated, due to insufficient processing access during the COVID-19 pandemic, and for the cost of depopulation and disposal. PLIP aids producers who depopulated swine, chickens, or turkeys during the period between March 1, 2020 and December 26, 2020.
