Sign-up for the new Coronavirus Food Assistance Program (CFAP) is underway. National Cotton Council (NCC) Vice President of Washington Operations Reece Langley explains how the payment rates are calculated for cotton.

The sign-up period, which began this week, runs through August 28. Langley says the application process is relatively simple.

There has been some confusion since the notice included two different payment rates. Langley explains the differences.

NCC has a summary of these provisions and examples for cotton on their website.
