Funding Program to Assist Socially Disadvantaged Farmers
USAgNet - 04/06/2021

USDA's Farm Service Agency announced the availability of $2 million to establish partnerships with organizations to provide outreach and technical assistance to socially disadvantaged farmers and ranchers.

The funding was made possible by USDA's new Pandemic Assistance for Producers initiative, an effort to distribute resources more broadly and to put greater emphasis on outreach to small and socially disadvantaged producers impacted by the pandemic.

Today also marks the reopening of FSA's Coronavirus Food Assistance Program 2 (CFAP 2) signup as part of the Pandemic Assistance for Producers initiative.

Farmers and ranchers will have at least 60 days to apply or make modifications to existing CFAP 2 applications.
