CFAP 2 Program Signup Deadline is Friday December 11th at Your Local FSA Office

Mon, 07 Dec 2020 15:19:35 CST

CFAP 2 Program Signup Deadline is Friday December 11th at Your Local FSA Office The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Farm Service Agency (FSA) reminds farmers and ranchers to apply for the Coronavirus Food Assistance Program 2 (CFAP 2) by Dec. 11, 2020. This program provides direct relief to producers facing market disruptions and associated costs because of COVID-19. Over 759 thousand farmers and ranchers have received CFAP 2 help thus far- a total of 2.614 billion dollars have been distributed nationally.

"With over 300 eligible commodities, from livestock and row crops to specialty crops and aquaculture, most farmers and ranchers are potentially eligible for CFAP 2," said Richard Fordyce, Farm Service Agency administrator. "FSA offers several options for farmers and ranchers to apply. Don't wait to check out our online resources and connect with our employees who are ready to answer your questions and help you get started on your application."


Producers have several options for applying for the CFAP 2 program by the Dec. 11 deadline. Producers can find eligible commodities, payment rates, calculations and options to apply on farmers.gov/cfap.
Customers seeking one-on-one support with the CFAP 2 application process can call 877-508-8364 to speak directly with a USDA employee ready to offer general assistance. This is a recommended first step before a producer engages the team at the FSA county office. The call center can also provide service to non-English speaking customers. Customers will select 1 for English and 2 to speak with a Spanish speaking employee. For other languages, customers select 1 and indicate their language to the call center staff.


Additionally, farmers.gov offers a number of resources for producers interested in applying for CFAP 2, including:

• Eligible Commodities Finder

• Videos, including "How to Apply for CFAP 2"

• Blogs, including "Myth Debunked: Coronavirus Food Assistance Program 2"

A correction to the CFAP 2 rule is pending. In case a producer is affected by this correction, FSA will provide additional time to apply or edit their application.

CFAP 2 is a separate program from the first iteration of CFAP, now referred to as CFAP 1. Participating in CFAP 1 is not a prerequisite for participating in CFAP 2. Additionally, producers who applied for CFAP 1 will not be automatically enrolled in CFAP 2 and must complete a new application to be eligible for assistance.
