Our nation has faced unprecedented challenges due to the Coronavirus pandemic, and the agriculture industry is no exception. USDA Farm Service Agency reminds farmers and ranchers that FSA is now accepting applications for the Coronavirus Food Assistance Program. The program provides vital financial assistance to producers to offset the impact of COVID-19.
Certain crops and livestock, along with wool and dairy, are eligible for CAFAP. Our website is famers.gov/cfap. It is your one-stop-shop for eligible commodities, payment rates, eligibility criteria, and application forms. You will also find a payment calculator that assists you with completing your application.
We are accepting applications for CFAP through Aug. 28. If you have CFAP questions, customers can call the CFAP center at 887-508-8364, or contact your local FSA county office. In Lamar County, it is at 201 N. Collegiate Drl, Ste 500, Paris.
