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.

Resources and technical assistance available through the Resources for Resilient Farms Project is made possible by past and current USDA Cooperative Agreement projects, FSA21CPT0011944 and NIFA 2022-70416-37195.
