CORONAVIRUS FOOD ASSISTANCE PROGRAM 2 (CFAP 2)
The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) is providing critical support to our nation’s farmers and ranchers through the Coronavirus Food Assistance Program (CFAP 2). CFAP 2 provides vital financial assistance to agricultural producers who continue to face market disruptions and associated costs because of COVID-19.
The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Stability Act (CARES Act) and the Commodity Credit Corporation (CCC) Charter Act authorized the funds for the original CFAP. CCC funds will be used for CFAP 2, with the exception of tobacco, which will use remaining CARES Act funds.
FSA is accepting applications for CFAP 2 until October 12, 2021.
Producers (persons or legal entities) of specified agricultural commodities who face continuing market disruptions and significant marketing costs are eligible for CFAP 2 payments.
