COLUMBUS, Ohio, April 29, 2020 - USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service’s Conservation Client Gateway is a secure web portal that lets you work with NRCS online. Landowners and land managers, whether operating as individuals or authorized representatives of business entities, can track their payments, report completed practices, request conservation assistance and electronically sign documents. The Conservation Client Gateway provides users the flexibility to engage with Ohio NRCS online.
“We want our customers to know about this free and secure online tool available to them to access NRCS client services,” said Jon Bourdon, acting state conservationist for Ohio. “One of the greatest benefits of Conservation Client Gateway is the ability to sign documents electronically. This feature has the potential to save our customers valuable time and a trip to the USDA Service Center.”
USDA Service Centers are open for business by phone appointment only and field work will continue with appropriate social distancing. While program delivery staff will continue to come into the office, they will be working with producers by phone, and using online tools whenever possible. All USDA Service Center visitors wishing to conduct business with NRCS, the Farm Service Agency, or any other USDA Service Center agency are required to call their Service Center to schedule a phone appointment.
