Dairy farmers are eligible for direct support through USDA’s Coronavirus Food Assistance Program (CFAP). CFAP offers direct financial assistance to agricultural producers, providing them the ability to weather the economic uncertainty caused by COVID-19. Dairy producers not enrolling in the CFAP will miss out on millions of dollars of financial aid aimed at helping them deal with low prices in 2020.
 
USDA is accepting CFAP applications through Friday, September 11. Visit www.farmers.gov/cfap to determine your eligibility and to apply for assistance.
