President Donald Trump and USDA released the long-awaited rules for direct payments under the Coronavirus Food Aid Program (CFAP) at the White House Tuesday, saying enrollment will start next week with initial payments to follow the week after. CFAP and Commodity Credit Corporation payments combined will total $6.18 per cwt for eligible producers.

USDA will only pay out 80% of the maximum direct payment initially, reserving the remaining 20% in case funding for the program runs out.
