Starting Monday, eligible producers can sign up for the latest round of the Coronavirus Food Program, better known as CFAP.
“Starting next week my administration is committing additional relief to help farmers,” President Trump announced last week. CFAP 2 as it’s known will make an additional $14 billion dollars for producers facing market disruptions and associated costs related to COVID-19. Much of the funding will go to direct payments.
In addition, more commodities eligible this round in CFAP. Ag Secretary Sonny Perdue said they’ve been working on the expansion for some time.
“This is an example of government working for the people we ask for your input and we listen and we updated the program based on the comments that we receive.”
Sign-Up will run through December 11th. Click Here for more details on CFAP 2. If you have questions, you’re encouraged to contact your local FSA office.
