FARM BUREAU APPLAUDS CFAP APPLICATION DEADLINE EXTENSION
American Farm Bureau Federation reports:

Washington - American Farm Bureau Federation President Zippy Duvall commented today on USDA's decision to extend the Coronavirus Food Assistance Program (CFAP) application deadline. AFBF sent a letter to Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack requesting an extension for farmers and ranchers.

"AFBF applauds Secretary Vilsack for his swift response to our call for an extension to the CFAP application deadline. Coronavirus aid is a lifeline for farmers and ranchers who are suffering from losses due to the pandemic. Recent severe weather and the suspension of CFAP payments led to challenges and confusion surrounding the application process. The extra time will help ensure America's farmers have the opportunity to apply for help.

"We encourage USDA to quickly complete its review of CFAP so resources can be distributed to the people who are working to feed families across the country."
