CFAP payments slowing; 43% paid so far

The latest report on the Coronavirus Food Assistance Program (CFAP) shows payments are slowing and only 43 percent of the allotted funds have been paid out so far.

Only 267 million dollars in CFAP support was delivered last week, bringing the total dollars distributed to about six-point-eight billion dollars.  Of that amount, cattle producers have received about three billion, milk producers one-point-three billion, corn growers one-point-two billion and hog farmers 430 million.

Iowa continues to lead all other states with 700 million dollars in payments, followed by Nebraska at 500 million, Minnesota at 435 million and Wisconsin at 390 million.

Sign-up for CFAP closes on August 28th.
