Farm Credit Administration


Farm Credit Administration
(FCA)
   Established by executive order in March 1933 and confirmed by the Federal Credit Act on 16 June 1933 as part of the legislation introduced in the “First Hundred Days” of the New Deal to tackle the agricultural crisis, the FCA established a central bank for cooperatives and 12 regional banks that could make loans to provide production credit, refinance farm mortgages, and repurchase properties. By 1940, the agencies supervised by the FCA had lent some $6.87 million. In 1939, the FCA was transferred to the Department of Agriculture.
