USDA is committed to delivering financial assistance to farmers, ranchers, and agricultural producers who have been impacted by COVID-19 market disruptions through our new initiative – USDA Pandemic Assistance for Producers.

Coronavirus and USDA Service Centers

As proactive health measures are put in effect nationwide to reduce the spread of coronavirus, USDA is taking measures to ensure the safety of its employees and customers. As a result, access to FSA County Offices may be limited. Before visiting a USDA Service Center, contact your office to confirm an in-person or phone appointment. Agricultural producers should visit farmers.gov/coronavirus for the latest information on available services and the latest status of services centers impacted by these locally-specific health measures.
