Coronavirus and USDA Service Centers

USDA Service Centers in Louisiana 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.


The new brochure, Farmers Guide to Farm Bill Programs, is posted online (farmers.gov, FSA, NRCS, and RMA Farm Bill websites). 

This guide describes assistance for farmers, ranchers, and private forest landowners available through the 2018 Farm Bill.
