NRCS Has Online Conservation Assistance

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s new online option, Conservation Client Gateway, allows individual landowners and land users the secure ability to request conservation technical and financial assistance from the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service. We strongly encourage local farmers to look into what this new tool has to offer.

Conservation Client Gateway will save Illinois farmers time and money by not having to drive to our office every time you need a map or I need a signature on a program contract, program application or program payment.  It will also allow individuals to view status of payments that they have signed.

Producers can log on to the Client Gateway website and request technical assistance, schedule appointments or field visits, apply for conservation program assistance, review and sign documents, and access conservation plans, maps and other files. The online service options are only available for individual farmers and landowners at this time. NRCS will offer these services for farm entities, as well as smartphone options in the future.

Visit for more information, fact sheets and a how-to video. Producers can also contact NRCS at their local USDA Service Center office to learn more about this new way to access NRCS assistance or to sign up.
