This Notice of Funding Opportunity (NFO) seeks proposals to support and further expand Farm Service Agency (FSA)’s existing program outreach and education efforts to socially disadvantaged applicants (SDA), specifically farmers and ranchers. The mission of the Farm Service Agency is equitably serving all farmers and ranchers through the delivery of effective, efficient agricultural programs for all Americans. However, FSA is aware that all farmers and ranchers may not be optimally aware of FSA programs. Therefore, this opportunity is intended to provide additional outreach to SDA farmers and ranchers in areas and communities where additional outreach would be beneficial.
With the complex nature of some of FSA’s programs, FSA intends this NFO to focus additional outreach and education to producers in areas who could benefit from additional outreach in order to
- increase access and participation of SDAs in FSA programs and services and
- improve technical assistance related to FSA farm and farm loan programs.
Institutional Limit: 1 Proposal
Internal Deadline: April 23, 2021 4:45 pm
