USDA Offices Closed To Public Posted by John Axtell Date: March 27, 2020 5 Views LINCOLN, Neb. – All USDA Service Centers in Nebraska are now operating by phone appointment only with field work continuing with appropriate social distancing. The limit affects those working with the Farm Service Agency, Natural Resources Conservation Service, and any other agency in those centers. Program delivery staff will continue to come into their offices, but will be working with producers by phone and using online tools whenever possible. Phone appointments need to be scheduled in advance. Online services are available to customers with an eAuth account, which provides access to the farmers.gov portal where producers can view USDA farm loan information and payments and view and track certain USDA program applications and payments. Online NRCS services are available to customers through the Conservation Client Gateway. Customers can track payments, report completed practices, request conservation assistance, and electronically sign documents. Customers who do not already have an eAuth account can enroll at farmers.gov/sign-in. For the most current updates on available services and Service Center status visit farmers.gov/coronavirus.
