Coronavirus (COVID-19)

FCA has taken various steps to address the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic.

First, the agency is urging Farm Credit System institutions to work with borrowers affected by the virus and the measures taken to contain it. 

Second, we have notified System institutions of our willingness to provide them with temporary regulatory relief as they manage the operational challenges created by the pandemic. We are also communicating regularly with the institutions to provide guidance and assistance.

Our actions are consistent with measures taken by other federal banking regulators to help borrowers, consumers, and financial institutions that have been affected by the coronavirus.

We will update this page as more information and resources become available.
