U.S. Ag Secretary Sonny Perdue says the expansiveness of the ag handling division makes it hard to characterize a coronavirus alleviation program and its normal interest.
During his visit Friday to Michigan and Indiana, Perdue handled inquiries concerning what sort of COVID-19 help could stretch out past maker installments.
“Truly, I don’t have the foggiest idea how we would even compute what the interest is in that field.
Perdue reveals to Brownfield he expects a second round of the Coronavirus Food Assistance Program with $14 billion accessible to turn out at some point later in September.
“We didn’t have the foggiest idea what the task misfortunes for the rest of the year could be, however I think CFAP-2 will cover that.”
Perdue says direct maker installments are drawing closer $10 billion and he expects the remaining $6 billion to be used once applications have been handled.
