On Friday, April 17th, USDA Secretary Sonny Perdue announced the Coronavirus Food Assistance Program (CFAP) that will provide $19 billion in aid to farms impacted by COVID-19. USDA is expected to release guidelines including eligibility for the aid in coming weeks. NAGA sent a letter to Secretary Perdue explaining how gamebird businesses have been impacted by COVID-19 and why we should be considered eligible for the program. NAGA also offered assistance to USDA to help quantify losses suffered by gamebird businesses.
