WELCOME TO THE FARM SERVICE AGENCY

The Connecticut division of the Farm Service Agency (FSA) offers farmers a variety of assistance through farm programs, farm loans and ad hoc disaster programs. Our employees work with farmers daily to identify assistance we can provide for their specific operations. We've been serving farmers since 1935 and we're always looking for opportunities to strengthen Connecticut's agricultural community.

To learn about what we can do for you, contact your local county office through the USDA service center locator.

UPDATES AND INFORMATION

Coronavirus Food Assistance Program

Are you a farmer or rancher whose operation has been directly impacted by the coronavirus pandemic? The Coronavirus Food Assistance Program will provide direct relief to producers who faced price declines and additional marketing costs due to COVID-19.

Beginning May 26, FSA will begin accepting applications for CFAP. To find the latest information on CFAP, including forms and the contact information for your local Service Center, visit farmers.gov/CFAP.


Coronavirus and USDA Service Centers

USDA Service Centers in Connecticut will continue to be open for business by phone appointment only and field work will continue with appropriate social distancing. While our program delivery staff will continue to come into the office, they will be working with our producers by phone, and using online tools whenever possible. All Service Center visitors wishing to conduct business with FSA are required to call their Service Center to schedule a phone appointment. In the event a Service Center is not currently available to serve customers on location, producers can receive assistance from the closest alternate Service Center by phone. Learn more at farmers.gov/coronavirus.


2018 Farm Bill

The 2018 Farm Bill provides support, certainty, and stability to our nation's farmers, ranchers, and forest managers by enhancing farm support programs, improving crop insurance, maintaining disaster programs, and promoting and supporting voluntary conservation.

To learn more about the 2018 Farm Bill visit famers.gov/farmbill or read the Farmers' Guide to Farm Bill Programs brochure.
