Trump Administration Appoints Janice Kolvet to Serve as State Executive Director for USDA’s Farm Service Agency in Nevada

RENO, Nev. -- Nov. 16, 2017- The Trump Administration recently appointed Janice Kolvet as the new State Executive Director (SED) for the USDA Nevada Farm Service Agency (FSA). Kolvet’s appointment as Nevada FSA SED began on Monday, Oct. 30.

Kolvet has worked for FSA for the past 20 years in various positions within the agency. She has helped manage farm program delivery at the county office level, and as a district director in California and as a program specialist in both Nevada and California state FSA offices. She has also served as a supervisory program specialist in the Production, Emergencies and Compliance Division, Disaster Assistance Section, at FSA headquarters.

The Farm Service Agency serves farmers, ranchers and agricultural partners through the delivery of effective, efficient agricultural programs. The agency offers farmers a strong safety net through the administration of farm commodity and disaster programs. FSA continues to conserve natural resources and also provides credit to agricultural producers who are unable to receive private, commercial credit, including special emphasis on beginning, underserved and women farmers and ranchers.

Under the direction of Secretary Sonny Perdue, the USDA will always be facts-based and data-driven, with a decision-making mindset that is customer-focused. Secretary Perdue leads the USDA with four guiding principles: to maximize the ability of American agriculture to create jobs, sell foods and fiber, and feed and clothe the world; to prioritize customer service for the taxpayers; to ensure that our food supply is safe and secure; and to maintain good stewardship of the natural resources that provide us with our miraculous bounty. And understanding that we live in a global economy where trade is of top importance, Secretary Perdue has pledged to be an unapologetic advocate for American agriculture.

As SED, Kolvet will use her leadership experience to oversee FSA programs in a customer-focused manner to ensure a safe, affordable, abundant and nutritious food supply for consumers.
