Application Reminder – Corona Virus Food Assistance Program 2
Don’t Miss Out! Producers have until Friday, December 11, 2020, to apply for USDA Coronavirus Food Assistance Program (CFAP) Round 2.
Payments under CFAP2 will go to producers of crops in three categories:
- Price trigger commodities: Major commodities producers will qualify for payments based on documented price declines.
- Flat rate crops: Producers of certain crops (mostly grains) will be eligible for payments based on the size of their crop even if they can’t demonstrate a price drop.
- Sales commodities: Specialty crop producers will qualify for payments based on 2019 gross sales.
Contact Maine’s Farm Credit East field offices with questions.
