Farmers can get financial assistance during pandemic

File Photo/Lawrence Emerson
Facing sales losses of 5 percent or more and/or higher marketing costs, commodities producers can qualify for the USDA Coronavirus Food Assistance Program.
Farmers who produce commodities can qualify for federal financial assistance to help offset losses related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture administers the Coronavirus Food Assistance Program that compensates producers for sales declines and increased marketing costs.

The USDA Farm Services Agency will accept applications for assistance through Aug. 28.

Farmers must suffer 5 percent or greater sales declines or “face substantial marketing costs for inventories” to qualify.

Eligible commodities include crops, dairy, livestock and wool.

For more information and/or help with the application, call the FSA office in Warrenton at 540-347-4402.
