The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) will provide additional assistance through the Coronavirus Food Assistance Program (CFAP), expanding eligibility for some agricultural producers and commodities as well as updating payments to accurately compensate some producers who already applied for the program. Producers who are now eligible and those who need to modify existing applications can contact their local FSA office between from now until Feb. 26, 2021.

Contract producers of swine, broilers, laying hens, chicken eggs and turkeys who suffered a drop in revenue in 2020 as compared to their 2019 revenue because of the pandemic are now eligible for assistance. Producers of pullets and turfgrass sod are also now eligible for CFAP payments. For updated payments, FSA has adjusted the payment calculations that were previously used. Eligible producers that are interested in modifying their previous CFAP2 applications have until Feb. 26 to request the updated payments.
