USDA has reopened signups for the Coronavirus Food Assistance Program 2 (CFAP 2) as of April 5, 2021. As part of the Pandemic Assistance for Producers initiative, farmers and ranchers will have at least 60 days to apply or make modifications to existing CFAP 2 applications.
CFAP 2 provides financial assistance that gives producers the ability to absorb increased marketing costs associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. Among the eligible commodities are specialty crops and nursery crops. The initial CFAP 2 signup ended on Dec. 11, 2020.
