USDA is establishing new programs and efforts to bring financial assistance to farmers, ranchers and producers who felt the impact of COVID-19 market disruptions. The new initiative—USDA Pandemic Assistance for Producers—will reach a broader set of producers than in previous COVID-19 aid programs. USDA is dedicating at least $6 billion toward the new programs. Existing programs like the Coronavirus Food Assistance Program (CFAP) will fall within the new initiative and, where statutory authority allows, will be refined to better address the needs of producers. Robin Reid and Todd Barrows will explain what producers can expect for assistance and what they need to do to apply. Farm Service Agency will be taking modified applications for the CFAP 2 program starting April 5th, 2021 but many producers will not need to reapply to receive assistance.
