Governor Wolf Announces Disaster Relief Funding Available for Farms in 14 PA Counties

Harrisburg, PA - Governor Tom Wolf today notified farmland owners in Columbia, Lebanon, and York counties that they are eligible to receive disaster relief funding from the United States Department of Agriculture.  Also eligible are the adjacent counties of Adams, Berk, Cumberland, Dauphin, Lancaster, Luzerne, Lycoming, Montour, Northumberland, Schuylkill, and Sullivan.

"This funding will provide relief to Pennsylvania farmers who dealt with a year of unexpected difficulties due to severe weather," said Governor Wolf. "I encourage those in eligible areas to apply, so that they can receive the assistance they need to help losses ahead of the next growing season."

The funding will help with losses caused by disasters that occurred during the 2018 crop year, such as excessive rain and flash flooding.  It is the result of a Secretarial disaster declaration and can include emergency loans from the federal Farm Service Agency (FSA).

Eligible farmers can apply for loans for up to eight months after a Secretarial disaster declaration, and should contact their local FSA office for assistance.  More information on USDA's disaster assistance program, including county lists and maps, can be found at http://disaster.fsa.usda.gov.

Lebanon County


East Hanover Township, Lebanon County has a population of 2,801 people, as of the 2010 Census. Located in the northwestern part of Lebanon County, in southcentral Pennsylvania, East Hanover is a primarily rural, agricultural community with scattered low density residential development. The Township was incorporated in 1813 when Lebanon County was separated from Dauphin County. East Hanover Township was divided between the two counties and the remaining townships of the County were subsequently formed.

The Township stretches over 33.9 square miles, including significant acreage in State and Federal Lands. Located within northwestern Lebanon County, the Township borders on Dauphin County. The City of Lebanon is a ten (10) mile drive south from Ono. The Harrisburg metropolitan area is directly west of East Hanover Township.

This fertile valley is bordered on the northwest by the Blue Mountain (the Kittatinny Ridge) and on the southeast, in the Lebanon County area, by the South Mountains. The winding Swatara Creek delineates almost all the southern border of East Hanover Township. The land south of Blue Mountain is gently rolling and traversed by several streams that area tributaries of the Swatara. The northern part of the Township extends over the Blue Mountain. Beyond the ridge of this mountain lies a large part of the Fort Indiantown Gap Military Reservation

East Hanover Township is a Township of the Second Class, governed by an elected three-member Board of Supervisors. Township meetings are the last Monday of each month at 7:30 p.m. at the Township Municipal Building. The Township Office is open 8am-Noon Monday-Thursday.
