Earlier this week *I heard* from an NSAC call that the COVID relief would depend very much on a phone call between Biden and McConnell which was supposed to happen earlier this week.

I work with AZ Heroes to Hometowns for their Turkeys to Troops event each Thanksgiving. Kathy expressed that their donation were way down this year as most are focusing on COVID relief so they cannot take care of as many families this year even though so many need the help.
Adrienne Udarbe

Thanks, just asking because some of our Double Up partners (SNAP retailers) are getting USDA calls/texts about P-EBT but i haven't been able to give them much info to help interpret the messages.

For anyone else that works with small and mid-size farmers & ranchers, I would encourage them to call their local FSA agents to see if they qualify for direct payments from USDA via CFAP-2. We've heard from one Phoenix farm that the application took less than a half hour to complete, and he got approval yesterday. While the program isn't perfect, it does seem like a lot of our farmers market/CSA providers will be eligible: https://www.farmers.gov/cfapm...big thanks to Kelley for helping get word out about yesterday's webinar!
Ashley St. Thomas (she/her), Arizona Food Bank Network

Thanks, Kelley. I'd be happy to help try to trouble-shoot any questions on P-EBT if you want to send my way.
