Many government agencies began as part of USDA and were located in Beltsville. The list includes the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the U.S. Geological Survey, and the USDA Forest Service. Other agencies—the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, the U.S. Department of Commerce, and the Office of Naval Research—also conducted research projects on USDA land in Beltsville. Collaborative research between USDA and other agencies continues today.
