The U.S. Department of Agriculture (Farm Service Agency) made additional funding available for wine grape growers who have lost sales as a result of COVID through the Coronavirus Food Assistance Program 2 (CFAP 2). The program offers direct payments for wine grape growers as opposed to loans. A 4 page fact sheet is attached. NOTE: All applications must be submitted by December 11, 2020.
Additional information on the program, eligibility, a payment calculator, and application can be found here:https://www.farmers.gov/cfap.
FSA hosted a webinar for interested applicants on Sept 24. It can be viewed here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HbTVeJzTqFY&feature=youtu.be.
