AFBF Appreciates Extension of CFAP Application Deadline

Tue, 11 Aug 2020 17:20:55 CDT

AFBF Appreciates Extension of CFAP Application Deadline The USDA announced it will extend the application deadline for the Coronavirus Food Assistance Program (CFAP) to September 11, 2020.

The American Farm Bureau Federation, along with 27 other agriculture organizations, sent a letter to USDA Secretary Sonny Perdue last week requesting the deadline be extended beyond August 28, 2020.

Dozens of commodities will also now be eligible for CFAP funding, including additional specialty crops, aquaculture, nursery crops and cut flowers.
The following statement may be attributed to AFBF President Zippy Duvall:

“We thank USDA for responding quickly to our letter and addressing the needs of America’s farmers and ranchers as they fight to stay afloat during the coronavirus pandemic. COVID-19 has taken its toll on farmers across the country, regardless of what they grow or raise. No one can tell when this pandemic will end, and extending the deadline and expanding eligibility will provide a lifeline at a time it’s needed most.

“Many hard-working farm families have not gone through federal programs before and need help navigating their way through the process. We’re working to ensure farmers who now qualify for aid are made aware that it is available to them, and we encourage the USDA to expand its outreach efforts to do the same.”
