About Farm Service Agency

The Farm Service Agency (FSA) assists US farmers with a variety of conservation and financial services. Tracing its roots to 1933 in response to the Great Depression, the FSA was officially organized in 1994 by consolidating programs of the Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation Service, the Federal Crop Insurance Corporation, and the Farmers Home Administration. As part of the Department of Agriculture, its main tasks are stabilizing farm income, assisting in land and water conservation, offering credit to new or disadvantaged farmers and ranchers, and providing recovery assistance to farms following disasters. The agency has an annual budget of about $14 billion.
