Women Outreach Program


Woman Farmer


The Farm Service Agency (FSA) provides outreach to women farmers and ranchers, specifically those who have not participated in, or have not received benefits from USDA or FSA programs.

Many women have experienced barriers that hinder them from becoming a successful farmer or rancher. Some of these barriers are: access to credit and land, marketing, education of the different types of credit programs, loan qualifications, etc. Other barriers may include lack of information regarding what programs may be available, access to FSA service centers, or distrust of government officials.

To break these barriers, FSA is committed to carrying out an effective Outreach program. The goals include:

  • Establishing partnerships with members of the underserved and minority groups, community based organizations, community leaders, congressional leaders, educational institutions, and other federal agencies.
  • Promoting female representation in FSA County Office Committee nominations and elections.
