Farm Programs: USDA Needs to Do More to Prevent Improper Payments to Deceased Individuals
Daniel Garcia-Diaz (au)
The U.S. Dept. of Agriculture (USDA) spends about $20 billion annually on federal programs that support farm income, conserve natural resources, and help farmers manage risks from natural disasters, benefiting over 1 million participants. Given their cost and continuing nationwide budget pressures, these programs have come under increasing scrutiny. One concern has been the distribution of benefits to ineligible participants, including potentially improper payments to deceased individuals, which may call into question whether these farm safety net programs are benefiting the agricultural sector as intended. This report evaluated USDA controls over payments to the deceased. It examines the extent to which procedures are in place to prevent (1) the Farm Service Agency (FSA) and (2) the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) from making potentially improper payments to deceased individuals and (3) the Risk Management Agency (RMA) from providing potentially improper subsidies on behalf of deceased individuals. This is a print on demand report.
