Welcome to the Oklahoma FSA Website!
Launching the Celebration – 30 Years of Conservation
2015 marks the 30th Anniversary of the Conservation Reserve program (CRP) and in recognition of this milestone; FSA has launched a commemorative website. The web address is www.fsa.usda.gov/CRPis30
. We hope you’ll visit the site often to take an interactive, cross-country tour and see the nationwide impact of the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) unfold virtually over the next several months.
Livestock Forage Program (LFP)
The Livestock Forage Disaster Program (LFP) provides compensation to eligible livestock producers who have suffered grazing losses due to drought or fire. LFP payments for drought are equal to 60 percent of the monthly feed cost for up to five months. LFP payments for fire on federally managed rangeland are equal to 50 percent of the monthly feed cost for the number of days the producer is prohibited from grazing the managed rangeland, not to exceed 180 calendar days. The 2014 Farm Bill made LFP a permanent program.
Sign up to receive Electronic News and Updates
Due to limited budgets FSA is unable to continue sending Newsletters to producers via standard mail. In order to stay informed about important program information and deadlines, you should sign up to receive FSA News direct to your email or Smart-phone.
This electronic news service - GovDelivery - is free and convenient.
To sign up, complete an AD-2047 Form
and submit it to your local FSA office.
Electronic Check Processing
FSA/CCC has an electronic method for processing customer check payments. When a check is submitted for payment either in person or through the mail, the check will be converted into an Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT). The funds will be debited from the producer’s account, usually within 24 hours of receipt. Please see the U.S. Department of Treasury legal notices posted in the Service Center for detailed information.
AGI Verification Process Requires Producers to Submit Forms to IRS
USDA and Internal Revenue Service will use an electronic information exchange process to ensure 2008 and future payments have not been issued to producers whose average adjusted gross income (AGI) exceeds certain limits.
Note: AGI limitations are applicable for payments issued according to the 2014 Farm Bill.
