2024 Farm Service Agency County Committee Election
Posted on 06/20/2024


The 2024 USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) County Committee election season is officially underway! 

Do you know an agricultural producer interested in serving on a local FSA County Committee? Now is the time to submit that person’s name as a nominee! 


FSA County Committees Explained:

FSA County Committees are a critical component of the day-to-day operations of FSA and allow grassroots input and local administration of federal farm programs. Nationwide, more than 7,700 dedicated members of the agricultural community have been elected by their peers to serve on FSA county committees. The committees are made up of 3 to 11 members who serve three-year terms. Nowhere else in the federal government do citizen stakeholders play such a substantial and meaningful role in the delivery of federal programs.


Election Details:

Annual elections are held in Local Administrative Areas (LAA). LAAs are elective areas for FSA committees within a single county or multi-county jurisdiction. This may include LAAs focuses on an urban or suburban area. Farmers and ranchers who participate or cooperate in an FSA program, reside within an LAA that is up for election, and are of legal voting age can be a candidate. 

Foxborough is located in Local Administrative Area (LAA) #5.


Submitting a Nomination (due 8/1/24):

From Jun. 17th to Aug. 1st, 2024, individuals can nominate themselves or others as a candidate.
