President Donald Trump and U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue on Friday announced up to an additional $14 billion for agricultural producers who continue to face market disruptions and associated costs because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Signup for the Coronavirus Food Assistance Program (CFAP 2) will begin Monday and run through Dec. 11, according to a USDA news release.
“America’s agriculture communities are resilient, but still face many challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic,” Perdue said.
USDA said it has incorporated improvements in CFAP 2 based on stakeholder engagement and public feedback to better meet those needs.
Producers can apply for CFAP 2 at USDA’s Farm Service Agency (FSA) county offices, according to the USDA.
