Signup for USDA’s Pandemic Assistance Revenue Program

The Pandemic Assistance Revenue Program (PARP) will assist eligible producers of agricultural commodities who experienced revenue decreases in calendar year 2020 compared to 2018 or 2019 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. PARP will help address gaps in previous pandemic assistance, which was targeted at price loss or lack of market access, rather than overall revenue losses. For PARP, eligible agricultural commodities include aquaculture.

USDA’s Farm Service Agency will accept PARP applications through June 2, 2023.

PARP payments will be made on a whole-farm basis. To be eligible for PARP, a producer must have been in the business of farming during at least part of the 2020 calendar year and must have experienced a 15 percent decrease in allowable gross revenue in 2020, as compared to either:

  • The 2018 or 2019 calendar year, as elected by the producer, if they received allowable gross revenue during the 2018 or 2019 calendar years, or
  • The producer’s expected 2020 calendar year allowable gross revenue, if the producer had no allowable gross revenue in 2018 or 2019.

For more information on determining allowable gross revenue visit or review the PARP fact sheet.

To apply for PARP, contact your local USDA Service Center.
