APPLY FOR CORONAVIRUS FARM ASSISTANCE PROGRAM PAYMENTS

Blueberries now qualify for all categories of the Coronavirus Farm Assistance Program.

 For general information about CFAP program visit: https://www.farmers.gov/cfap

 Producers will be able to submit applications for newly eligible Category 1 on Monday, July 13, 2020. 

 USDA’s Farm Service Agency (FSA) is accepting through Aug. 28, 2020, applications for CFAP, which helps offset price declines and additional marketing costs because of the coronavirus pandemic. 

 Producers self-certify when applying for CFAP, and documentation is not submitted with the application. You may be asked for additional documentation to support your certification of eligible commodities, so you should retain the documentation used to complete your application. 

 USDA’s Farm Service Agency offers multiple ways for you to apply.

 You can apply online, or manually download forms and apply at your local FSA office.

 Information on additional documents and how to apply is provided at FARMERS.gov
