Assistance is currently available through FSA for many livestock, crop, and specialty crop producers. This is separate from the program that was offered earlier this year and some of the eligible commodities have changed. This program is called CFAP 2 and it is simple to find out if you qualify and also simple to apply. You do not need to have worked with FSA in the past to take part in this program.
Signup for the Coronavirus Food Assistance Program 2 (CFAP 2) began on Sept. 21, 2020 and will continue through Dec. 11, 2020. CFAP 2 provides eligible producers with direct financial assistance due to market disruptions and associated costs because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Check out a brief video about the program.
USDA’s new, easy-to-use CFAP 2 Eligible Commodities Finder makes finding payment rates specific to your operation simple. From yam to alpaca farmers – and everyone in between – the payment rate information you need is just a few clicks away. Try it today on your desktop, tablet, or mobile device.
