NASCOE response to the 2015 USDA Budget
NASCOE worked hard this past year to educate and ensure members of Congress knew what FSA does on a daily basis and what it takes from a financial standpoint to deliver services to FSA customers. At times it seemed like NASCOE was alone in the process of educating decision makers about USDA resource needs.
The budget process for the current year is complete. NASCOE is pleased to announce that Congress passed a budget that recognized the need for a higher level of FSA funding. Although the appropriation is less than what is needed, the Congressional budget provided $60 million more than the Department requested for the current year.
