Farmers.gov accounts allow you to access self-service features and information that are available through a secure login. With an account, you can use features such as the ability to apply for select programs online, process transactions, and manage your USDA records. To access your farmers.gov account, you will need to use a service called USDA eAuthentication, or eAuth.
Information on how to apply for the Coronavirus Food Assistance Program is available at farmers.gov/cfap. Producers should apply through the Farm Service Agency at their local USDA Service Center. Producers with an eAuthentication account can now apply for CFAP via our CFAP Application Portal.

How to Create an eAuth Login to Access Your Farmers.gov Account
- Before you start, contact your local service center to confirm you have a USDA customer record with a primary email address. Use our Service Center Locator to find your local office.
- Navigate to the eAuth Account Registration page.
- Select "Customer" on the registration page.
- Enter your primary email address. You will receive an email from eAuth asking you to confirm your email address. Click the “Continue Registration” link in this email to continue the registration process.
Note: When you log in, your User ID will be your email address.
- Next, enter your name and set a password.
- Visit the farmers.gov login page and log in with your new eAuth account.
- Your identity must be verified before you can access your farmers.gov account. You will have the option to verify your identity online (recommended) or in person by a Local Registration Authority (LRA). You will need to add information to your account profile such as your date of birth, residential address, and phone number to verify your identity.

Currently, only customers doing business as individuals can access their account records through farmers.gov using their USDA eAuth login. Access for customers doing business as an entity (such as an LLC or Trust) or on behalf of another individual will be available in the future.
