Civil Rights

USDA United States Department of Agriculture. Natural Resources Conservation Service - Maine. Civil Rights.





NRCS employees are the greatest asset for enabling people to be good stewards of the Nation's soil, water, and related natural resources on non-Federal lands - in other words, in "Helping People Help the Land." To fulfill our mission and to better provide service, NRCS employees, and the public we served, must always be treated in a fair, nondiscriminatory, and equitable manner.

USDA is an equal opportunity provider, employer, and lender.
