Coronavirus Food Assistance Program -
Interested Growers get your applications in before June 2021
Good Afternoon Oregon Processed Vegetable Commission,
My name is Janelle Huserik, I am a County Executive Director for the Salem and Hillsboro USDA/Farm Service Agency (FSA) offices here in Oregon. I am reaching out to ensure you and your growers are aware of the Coronavirus Food Assistance Program 2 (CFAP 2) for which applications are being accepted at this time.
The CFAP 2 program provides direct payments for many commodities, including most vegetables, as a result of the pandemic’s affects on current markets. A full list of eligible commodities is available at www.farmers.gov/cfap2/commodities. The AD-3117 application Part F “Sales Commodities” covers most vegetables under “CROPS”. To apply for vegetables, the applicant would report “2019 Total Commodity Sales”, or rather income received from the sale of the raw commodity (any added value such as processing and packaging excluded) grown by them and sold in calendar year 2019. The program is a self-certification and our offices are ready to assist with any questions or applications! Additional information, including the manual application form and a link for the producers’ local office, is available at www.farmer.gov/cfap.
I’ve attached a program Fact Sheet and application to this email as well. This program is the same program that was announced last fall, and has now been reopened for at least 60 days beginning April 5, 2021. Please let me know if you have any questions!
