Farm Service Agency Announces Limited Service During Shutdown

 The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced Wednesday that 21 Farm Service Agency (FSA) offices will reopen in Nebraska on Thursday, January 17th, Friday, January 18th, and Tuesday, January 22nd, despite the ongoing Government shutdown.  The offices will re-open and call back furloughed employees to provide services needed immediately by Nebraska ag producers. The services will include helping with existing farm loans and helping ensure 1099s forms are distributed to borrowers by the Internal Revenue Service’s deadline.

“I want to ensure that Nebraska agriculture producers are aware of this opportunity provided by the USDA on January 17th, 18th, and 22nd. More than 20 Farm Service Agency offices across the state will reopen to provide limited, specific services. I encourage Nebraskans to closely review the services being offered and utilize them during this time,” said Senator Deb Fischer, a member of the Senate Agriculture Committee.
