The Iowa Organic Association (IOA) will be delivering a webinar on Monday, October 26th, from 12 - 12:30pm CST about the Coronavirus Food Assistance Program 2 (CFAP2).
Katie Kramer, the Agriculture Program Specialist with the Farm Service Agency (FSA) in Iowa, will be discussing CFAP2, eligibility for reimbursement, how to apply, as well as any questions you may have about the program and process.
Are you a farmer whose operation has been directly impacted by the coronavirus pandemic? USDA is implementing CFAP2 for agricultural producers who continue to face market disruptions and associated costs because of COVID-19.
CFAP2 payments are available to farmers to partially compensate for losses incurred between April 1, 2020 – August 31, 2020 (or from April 16th for livestock) where prices, markets, and supply chains have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. This new round of funding expands the time frame of losses covered (CFAP1 was only for mid-January through mid-April).
Additional commodities are eligible in CFAP2 that weren’t earmarked in the first CFAP distribution. If your agricultural operation has been impacted by the pandemic since April 2020, we encourage you to apply for CFAP2 and participate in this webinar to learn more about the program. A complete list of eligible commodities, payment rates and calculations can be found on farmers.gov/cfap.
The deadline to apply for this program is December 11, 2020, or until funds run out.
