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 service centers impacted by these locally-specific health measures.


Welcome to the Farm Service Agency (FSA) in Texas

At FSA, our mission is to do right and feed everyone.

Texas plays a vital role in United States agriculture. We lead the nation in the number of farms, and produce the most cotton, wool, and mohair in America.

The men and women of FSA work to ensure Texas farmers, ranchers, and landowners have access to all technical assistance, funding, and programs FSA has to offer. FSA serves all 254 Texas counties through a network of 173 county offices. The state office headquarters is located in College Station.

Since the implementation of the 2014 Farm Bill, FSA has invested an average of $1 billion each year into the stability of our state’s agricultural system.

We are committed to providing all available FSA programs throughout the state, including low-interest loans, commodity price support, disaster assistance, and conservation incentives. FSA programs are designed to provide an important safety net for farmers and ranchers during times of economic uncertainty, disaster, and emergency.

FSA is eager to assist all eligible Texas producers' agriculture endeavors. We encourage new customers, including beginning or underserved farmers and ranchers, to review resources available through FSA. We also welcome veterans, many of whom return home to rural communities, to consider agriculture as an option for their next career. We also support the growing group of women farmers who add tremendous value to the agriculture industry.

FSA directly impacts the lives of farmers and ranchers every day. We will continue to assist producers to ensure a safe, affordable, abundant, and nutritious food supply for all consumers.
