The U.S. Department of Agriculture announced on May 4, 2021, that it is reopening the signup period for its Coronavirus Food Assistance Program 2.
Producers can apply for CFAP 2 at their local Farm Service Agency (FSA) county offices. This program offers direct relief to pecan growers impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. CFAP’s financial assistance is designed to give producers the ability to absorb increased marketing costs associated with the pandemic. Producers will be compensated for ongoing market disruptions and assisted with the associated marketing costs.
