The new Supplemental Revenue Assistance Payments Program (SURE), created by Section 12033 of the 2008 Farm Bill as an amendment to the 1994 Federal Crop Insurance Act, is a permanent disaster aid program for farms producing crops. The program is one of five different permanent disaster programs authorized by the 2008 Farm Bill that are intended to replace ad hoc disaster relief programs. The other four standing disaster programs are the Livestock Indemnity Payments program (LIP), Livestock Forage Disaster program (LFP), Emergency Assistance for Livestock, Honey Bees and Farm Raised Fish program (ELAP), and the Orchard and Nursery Tree Assistance Program (TAP).
