CORONAVIRUS FOOD ASSISTANCE PROGRAM 2 - PODCAST

By Ben Werling and Florencia Colella of MSU Extension

One specialty crop grower described the Coronavirus Food Assistance Program 2 (CFAP 2) the “easiest government program I ever signed up for.”
In this 10-minute podcast, Ben Werling and Florencia Colella interview Benita Meekhof from the Farm Service Agency about it, and go through some of its differences from CFAP 1. We encourage specialty crop growers to check farmers.gov/cfap/specialty out, call your FSA office, and apply by December 11.
