Navigating FSA

The Farm Service Agency (FSA) is an agency of the U.S. Department of Agriculture that provides a variety of agricultural programs and services to farmers, ranging from farm loans, crop insurance, conservation programs, and disaster assistance programs. 

RAFI-USA has developed a wide range of resources and training to help farmers understand what FSA programs might benefit their operations and how to access them. We also are able to provide one-on-one FSA loan technical assistance to farmers of color located in the Southeast. U.S. Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico.
