Coronavirus and USDA Service Centers
Some USDA Service Centers in Oklahoma will begin allowing in-person office visits by appointment only. Our program delivery staff will be in the office and work with our producers in person, by phone, by email, or by using other online tools. All Service Center visitors wishing to conduct business should call ahead to confirm the office’s status and make an appointment before visiting. Visitors will be pre-screened based on health concerns or recent travel and must adhere to social distancing guidelines. Visitors will be required to wear a face covering during their appointment.
The Livestock Forage Disaster Program (LFP) provides compensation to eligible livestock producers who have suffered grazing losses due to drought or fire. LFP payments for drought are equal to 60 percent of the monthly feed cost for up to five months. LFP payments for fire on federally managed rangeland are equal to 50 percent of the monthly feed cost for the number of days the producer is prohibited from grazing the managed rangeland, not to exceed 180 calendar days. The 2014 Farm Bill made LFP a permanent program.
Due to limited budgets FSA is unable to continue sending Newsletters to producers via standard mail. In order to stay informed about important program information and deadlines, you should sign up to receive FSA News direct to your email or Smart-phone.
This electronic news service - GovDelivery - is free and convenient.
FSA/CCC has an electronic method for processing customer check payments. When a check is submitted for payment either in person or through the mail, the check will be converted into an Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT). The funds will be debited from the producer’s account, usually within 24 hours of receipt. Please see the U.S. Department of Treasury legal notices posted in the Service Center for detailed information.
USDA and Internal Revenue Service will use an electronic information exchange process to ensure 2008 and future payments have not been issued to producers whose average adjusted gross income (AGI) exceeds certain limits.
Note: AGI limitations are applicable for payments issued according to the 2014 Farm Bill.
