Are You Eligible for Assistance Through the Coronavirus Food Assistance Program 2?

Signup for the Coronavirus Food Assistance Program 2 (CFAP 2) began on Sept. 21, 2020 and will continue through Dec. 11, 2020. CFAP 2 provides eligible producers with direct financial assistance due to market disruptions and associated costs because of COVID-19.

CFAP 2 Eligible Commodities Finder


U.S. raisin growers (producers) are eligible to apply for funds under the Coronavirus Food Assistance Program 2 (CFAP 2), the second USDA direct payment program for producers who continue to face market disruptions and associated costs because of COVID-19. CFAP 2 is distinct from the first Coronavirus Food Assistance Program (CFAP 1), so raisin producers that applied for CFAP 1 will need to submit a separate CFAP 2 application to their Farm Service Agency (FSA), USDA county office.

The report below provides payment rates, requirements, limitations and other information necessary for understanding the Sales Commodity category within CFAP 2.

Raisins are among the specialty crops eligible for payments under the Sales Commodities category. A complete list of eligible sales commodities can be found at: https://www.farmers.gov/cfap/specialty
