Farm Service Agency County Committee Elections Launch June 14

The nomination period for USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) County Committees runs June 14 through Aug. 1, 2019, and elections will take place starting in November.

County committees are unique to FSA and serve as a direct link between agricultural communities across the country and USDA. Committees make important decisions about how federal farm programs are administered locally. Their input is vital on how FSA carries out disaster programs, as well as conservation, commodity and price support programs, county office employment and other agricultural issues.

Throughout the nomination period, we’ll introduce you to county committee members from around the nation. To see their stories and to learn more on FSA county committees, visit fsa.usda.gov/elections.
