COVID-19 Working Paper: Unpriced Commodity Inventory and COVID-19 Pandemic Assistance

The first round of the Coronavirus Food Assistance Program (CFAP 1) provided payments to agricultural producers adversely affected by price declines and other marketing losses caused by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Since the only producers eligible to receive a CFAP 1 payment were those who held unpriced inventory, this report examines the level of unpriced inventory held post-harvest 2019.
