Over 30% of CFAP 2.0 Spent as USDA Announces $4.5 Billion in Aid Already Distributed

As of October 13, USDA approved nearly 242,494 applications and awarded over $4.52 billion through the Coronavirus Food Assistance Program 2.0. See a breakdown by categories below: 

“Now that harvest season is winding down, we hope that individual growers find time to consider and apply for this financial assistance before it runs out,” said NPC CEO Kam Quarles. “We’ve heard positive feedback from those who have applied or sought assistance through their local FSA offices. If you have any questions about the process – which has been greatly simplified since the rollout of the initial CFAP 1.0 program – please be sure to call the FSA office at your local USDA Service Center to schedule an appointment as soon as possible.”
