USDA-NRCS has introduced a new and innovative tool to help landowners more efficiently manage their Conservation Plans and Contracts. The Conservation Client Gateway is available to request technical assistance, apply for financial assistance, review, sign, and submit applications and contracts, and track payments in a contract. Users can now do all of these things from the comfort of their own home, with no visit to the local USDA Service Center. If you’re interested in finding out more about Conservation Client Gateway and the many useful tools it has, contact the USDA Service Center in Cleveland, TN or the Polk County Soil Conservation District office in Benton, TN and ask to speak with Chase Hicks or Meaghan Maddux. There are also handouts available at both locations mentioned that tell more about Conservation Client Gateway.
