Producers experiencing severe drought conditions may be eligible
for cost-share assistance under the emergency program. This

and vineyards has been reduced below normal to the extent that
they cannot survive without additional water.

Illinois counties: Adams, Alexander, Bond, Brown, Cass,
Christian, Clay, Coles, Cumberland, Edwards, Effingham, Fayette,
Franklin, Gallatin, Greene, Hancock, Hardin, Jasper, Johnson,
