Outreach & Technical Assistance Cooperative Agreements with the FSA

FSA Establishes New Partnerships Through Cooperative Agreements

The U.S. Department Agriculture has entered into cooperative agreements with 55 partners to educate farmers and other producers that have been historically underserved by USDA programs offered through the Farm Service Agency (FSA). Nearly $2.5 million will go to nonprofits, associations, universities, and foundations that will provide training and information on FSA programs that provide financial, disaster or technical support.  Cooperative agreements between $20,000 and $75,000 are being awarded to organizations headquartered in 28 states, several of whom submitted multi-state or nationwide proposals. Applications for a second round of funding are still being accepted and are due July 11, 2016.
