Fayette-Union County USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) Acting Executive Director Lisa Hollars reminds farmers and ranchers the deadline to apply for the Coronavirus Food Assistance Program 2 (CFAP 2) is Dec. 11, 2020. This program provides direct financial relief to producers due to market disruptions and associated costs because of COVID-19.

“Most of the crops and livestock raised in Indiana, including many of them raised in our area, are eligible commodities for this program,” said Hollars. “If you haven’t already applied or contacted our office to learn more about the program, now is the time to do so. Our staff will help you through the application process.”
