As proactive health measures are put into effect nationwide to reduce the spread of coronavirus, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) is taking measures to ensure the safety of its employees and customers. As a result, access to certain facilities may be limited while remaining open for business.
All service center visitors wanting to conduct business with the Farm Service Agency, the Natural Resources Conservation Service or any other service center agency are encouraged to call their service centers to confirm availability for in-person or phone appointments before visiting. Producers can find their service center’s phone number at www.farmers.gov/service-center-locator.
Agricultural producers should visit www.farmers.gov/coronavirus for the latest information on available services and the latest status of service centers impacted by these locally-specific health measures.
