Coronavirus Food Assistance Program (CFAP) – Facts for Fancy Fruit

Coronavirus Food Assistance Program (CFAP)

This just in from Steven Brown, State Executive Director for USDA’s Farm Service Agency in Indiana

CFAP provides direct relief to agricultural producers who faced price declines and additional marketing costs due to COVID-19. In Indiana, we have already approved 15,034 applications and disbursed $164,250.055 as of July 27, 2020. I know many of our farmers and ranchers have applied for CFAP already, but the numbers indicate that some who are eligible have not.

A range of commodities are eligible for CFAP, including specialty crops. You can access the full list of eligible non-specialty, specialty, livestock, dairy, and wool commodities by visiting

Additional resources are available on, and we’re here any time to answer questions about the program.
