For fiscal year 2001, $60 million in supplemental funding was provided for the Emergency Conservation Program, to remain available until expended. Of this amount, $10 million was designated for rehabilitating farmland damaged by fires resulted from prescribed burning conducted by the Federal government in Los Alamos, New Mexico. Under the program, $64,985,108 in cost- sharing and technical assistance was provided in 44 States, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands to treat farmland damaged by droughts, floods, hurricanes, ice storms, tornadoes, wildfires, and other natural disasters. The 2001 program rehabilitated approximately 7,624,332 acres of farmland damaged by these natural disasters. In fiscal year 2002, it is estimated that $147 million in cost-share and technical assistance will be available for farmers and ranchers to rehabilitate farmland damaged by natural disasters. It is also estimated that $82 million in cost-share and technical assistance will be available for farmers and ranchers to rehabilitate farmland damaged by natural disasters during 2003.
