FSA Offices Will Increase Worker Capacity
Starting Monday, Farm Service Agency offices will be allowed to operate at 50 percent worker capacity. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the Biden Administration previously limited offices to 25 percent worker capacity. The White House is making an exception for Farm Production and Conservation offices to better serve farmers ahead of the planting season. FSA is also exploring ways to re-engage farmers for appointments. Many offices still are meeting with farmers over the phone or via e-mail.
