The Illinois Pork Producers Association (IPPA) has developed a disposal grant program to help offset the cost of depopulating herds in the unfortunate case that a farmer may need to do so because of COVID-19 implications.

A maximum of $3,000 may be granted per applicant. Funds are allocated on a first come, first served basis. Applicants must be pre-approved and submit invoices after the project is completed to receive payment.

Acceptable reimbursements are for carbon source, landfill, rendering, and/or transportation costs. Funds have been provided by IPPA and Illinois Farm Bureau.
