Agricultural producers, landowners and operators impacted by these office closures will receive written correspondence from FSA management regarding the office closure process. Upon receipt of the letter, producers will have 30 days to elect to move their respective business records to a county of their choosing if a county other than the default headquarters location is more convenient (note that some restrictions apply). After the 30 days, if no alternative county has been selected, all producer records in the closing county office will automatically be transferred to the new receiving headquarter office.

 
For more information regarding office closures and the business record transfer process, please contact your local FSA county office.
