USDA Coronavirus Food Assistance Program sign-up ends Sept. 11
USDA is providing critical support to our nation’s farmers and ranchers through the Coronavirus Food Assistance Program. The program provides financial assistance to producers of agricultural commodities with financial assistance that gives them the ability to absorb sales losses and increased marketing costs associated with the COVID-19 pandemic.
USDA’s Farm Service Agency and Agricultural Marketing Service administer the program.
FSA is accepting applications for the program through Sept. 11.
Eligible producers (person or legal entity) of specified agricultural commodities who have suffered a 5% or greater price decline as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and who face substantial marketing costs for inventories are eligible for CFAP payments. These specified commodities include certain specialty crops, non-specialty crops, wool, dairy, aquaculture, nursery crops and cut flowers, eggs, and livestock.
For a list of eligible commodities and payment criteria, visit farmers.gov/cfap.
