USDA COVID-19 Funding Dashboard
The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Funding Dashboard allows stakeholders to explore an overview of the sources and uses of USDA’s COVID‑19 funding. This interactive dashboard displays the amounts of USDA COVID‑19 funding enacted, budgeted, obligated, and spent, by appropriations act, agency, program area, and use of funds, as identified by USDA’s Office of Budget and Program Analysis and by the Forest Service.
The COVID-19 Funding Dashboard allows users to see how much of the funding has been obligated; search for funding under particular appropriations acts or agencies or program areas; or explore how much of the funding has been, or remains to be, spent. The unaudited data include the amounts budgeted where the appropriations acts specified only “such sums as may be necessary."
For Questions: Office of Analytics and Innovation, U.S. Department of Agriculture Office of Inspector General (OAI-ADMINS@oig.usda.gov).

USDA Coronavirus Food Assistance Program
The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Office of Inspector General (OIG) has launched a new data product called Data Stories. This product’s purpose is to enhance transparency of significant USDA programs using data analytics and visualizations while integrating data storytelling methods.
This data story focuses on the Coronavirus Food Assistance Program (CFAP), administered by the Farm Service Agency (FSA). It is the second in USDA OIG’s series of data stories (the first focused on USDA’s Farmers to Families Food Box Program).
USDA Farmers to Families Food Box Program
The first story in the Data Story series focuses on USDA’s Farmers to Families Food Box Program. Using unaudited data from USDA’s Agricultural Marketing Service, U.S. Census Bureau data, Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Opportunity Zone data, and other data sources, OIG explores the program (distributors, food boxes, and recipients) and invites readers to examine the data in different ways.
