Nursery Crops & The Coronavirus Food Assistance Program

Are you a nursery crop or cut flower producer whose operation has been directly impacted by the coronavirus pandemic?  The Coronavirus Food Assistance Program provides direct relief to producers who faced price declines and additional marketing costs due to COVID-19. The Coronavirus Food Assistance Program, or CFAP, provides vital financial assistance to producers of agricultural commodities who have suffered a five-percent-or-greater price decline or who had losses due to market supply chain disruptions due to COVID-19 and face additional significant ma rketing costs.  USDA is accepting applications now through September 11, 2020.
