President Donald J. Trump and U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue announced on September 17th that USDA will implement an expansion of the Coronavirus Food Assistance Program.

This $14 billion immediate relief program includes direct support to agricultural producers. CSU Extension and the USDA Farm Service Agency have teamed up to conduct a CFAP 2 webinar.
