In your comment it will be most helpful to: • Explain the proposed pilot project in as much detail as possible, including the issue or concern to be addressed and the intended benefit(s); • Provide specific examples to illustrate your points; • Describe whether the project is intended to benefit any particular region, type of agricultural producer (organic, direct market, wholesale, etc.), or end customer; and • Outline any potential costs or costs savings and the basis for the assumptions. At the conclusion of the comment period, FSA staff will review and consider all of the suggestions in the comments. As required by the 2014 Farm Bill, at least 60 days before initiating a pilot project, the Secretary will submit notice of the proposed pilot project to the Committee on Agriculture of the House of Representatives and the Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry of the Senate. FSA will also consider any feedback provided to the Secretary in response to that notice. FSA expects to select at least two to three pilot projects. FSA will announce the pilot projects through news release. FSA expects that one of the results of the pilot project will help expand service to underserved producers. For example, in remote areas, such as Indian Country, distance and travel time make it extremely difficult to establish the network of contacts essential for effective outreach and to provide technical assistance. FSA lacks the necessary knowledge and staff resources to overcome language and cultural barriers for some minority communities and provide effective outreach and technical assistance. In such situations, partnerships with local organizations could use existing networks and expertise to provide effective outreach and technical assistance and expand participation. This is one example of how FSA may carry out some pilot projects.
