  • The deadline for CFAP applications is December 11, 2020.
  • So far, over $41 million has been paid out to South Carolina farmers.
  • While the basics of the program are similar to the first-round of funding, there have been additions that will help our producers, including the inclusion of new commodities previously not eligible for assistance.
  • To find out if a commodity is eligible, please visit https://www.farmers.gov/cfap. Be sure to use the commodity finder to find payment rates for commodities.
  • The total CFAP 2 payment that a person may receive is $250,000 and is separate from CFAP 1 limitations.
  • Even if you applied for round one funding and/or received round one funding, you are still able to apply to CFAP 2.
  • Applications may be submitted via mail, fax, hand delivery or electronically.
