Our customers are at the heart of everything we do at Farm Credit Mid-America. If you have experienced financial hardships due to COVID-19, funding available through the Coronavirus Food Assistance Program (CFAP)* may be available to you, and we want you to have this important information.

On Tuesday, May 26, the USDA will begin accepting applications through the CFAP* from agricultural producers who have suffered losses. This program includes $16 billion in direct payments to producers to help offset impacts from the pandemic, including direct losses as well as additional adjustment and marketing costs.

In partnership with Watts & Associates, an organization that specializes in farm policy and agriculture economics, we have provided an overview on the intent of the Coronavirus Food Assistance Program, including the program design, eligibility and limitations, and signup resources. To view, please play the below video.

More information about the program and application requirements are available through the USDA’s website at www.farmers.gov/cfap.
