From USDA's Natural Resources Conservation Service:
Easy Way to Connect and Receive Conservation Help
GAINESVILLE, Fla., July 8, 2016 —Did you know the U.S. Department of Agriculture has an online web application that allows individual landowners and land users to request conservation technical and financial assistance? Agricultural producers can log on to the Conservation Client Gateway website 24/7 from their home office computer or laptop. They can apply for conservation program assistance, manage applications, review and sign documents, access conservation plans, maps and other documents.
By not having to drive to a USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) office to obtain a map or sign a document, the website can save Florida producers time and money. Enrollment is voluntary and producers are encouraged to sign up and give it a try.
“Farmers and ranchers will always be welcome in our field offices, but if it is more convenient to work with us online, now they can,” said NRCS Florida State Conservationist Russell Morgan. “This information will be available to them at their convenience and on their schedule.”
For more information, fact sheets, FAQs and a how-to video, visit www.nrcs.usda.gov/clientgateway. Producers can also contact NRCS at their local USDA Service Center office. Service center locations and program information can be found on the Florida NRCS Web site at www.fl.nrcs.usda.gov.
