Nursery, Greenhouse, and Cut-Flower Growers Invited to Participate in COVID-19 Impact Survey
Cornell Cooperative Extension is inviting nursery/greenhouse/cut-flower growers who have been impacted by COVID-19 market disruptions to complete a survey. This survey will help in providing data to USDA, which may help impacted farms qualify for CFAP farm disaster funding. These types of farms were left out of USDA’s Coronavirus Food Assistance Program (CFAP) disaster payment program for farmers due to lack of information on losses. USDA is seeking information to determine if these industries were affected by COVID-19 market impacts and are eligible for CFAP. While this survey is specific to the nursery, greenhouse, and cut-flower producers, Cornell Cooperative Extension encourages other commodity producers (ex: aquaculture, niche specialty crops) currently not covered under CFAP to submit comments to USDA for inclusion.
