The Coronavirus Food Assistance Program (CFAP) Application Deadline Extended to Sept 11

 by Megan Roberts, Extension educator

TulipsThe United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced several updates to the Coronavirus Food Assistance Program (CFAP) on August 11. In terms of application logistics, the most important announcement is that producers now have a few extra weeks to get their application into Farm Service Agency. The new application deadline is Friday, September 11, 2020. USDA also announced several new additions to the program, mostly involving specialty crops not in season here in Minnesota during the late winter and early spring period covered by CFAP. However, maple sap, nursery plants, early cut flowers, sheep over two years, some egg products, and other commodity additions may be relevant to Minnesota producers. Producers can visit for the comprehensive list of covered commodities and to learn more information about how to apply.
