NCGA Welcomes USDA Assistance Amid COVID-19

Mon, 20 Apr 2020 08:32:43 CDT

NCGA Welcomes USDA Assistance Amid COVID-19 The National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) today said much-needed assistance from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) would begin to help farmers and their customers recover from the financial impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.

USDA Secretary Sonny Perdue on Friday announced the Coronavirus Food Assistance Program (CFAP), providing $19 billion in immediate relief to support farmers and ranchers, maintain the integrity of the food supply chain and ensure Americans continue to receive and have access to food.

The program provides $3.9 billion for row crop producers, including corn farmers. The livestock industry, corn farmers' number one customer, will receive $9.6 billion in assistance, ensuring this important market keeps functioning.

"Agriculture is facing immense uncertainty amid the COVID-19 pandemic," said NCGA President Kevin Ross. "This much-needed relief will not only provide direct assistance to our nation's corn farmers but also deliver much-needed relief to our customers who produce and feed livestock. We thank Secretary Perdue for acting quickly and look forward to working with USDA on further program details."

NCGA is working closely with its members and leaders in Washington, D.C., to address the COVID-19 pandemic and remains committed to creating solutions to help corn farmers and their customers recover from the financial impacts of this crisis.
