Agricultural producers can now apply for USDA’s Coronavirus Food Assistance Program (CFAP), which provides direct payments to offset impacts from the coronavirus pandemic.

The application and a payment calculator are now available online, and USDA’s Farm Service Agency (FSA) staff members are available via phone, fax, and online tools to help producers complete applications. The agency set up a call center in order to simplify how they serve new customers across the nation.

“We know Wisconsin producers are facing a tough time now, and we are making every effort to provide much-needed support as quickly as possible,” said Sandy Chalmers state executive director for FSA in Wisconsin. “FSA is available over the phone and virtually to walk you through the application process, whether it’s the first time you’ve worked with FSA, or if you know us quite well.”
