Our program delivery staff will also continue to work with producers by phone and using online tools for those who do not feel comfortable coming to the Service Center in person.

“It is important to be open and available to Honolulu’s farmers and ranchers who need Federal assistance during these challenging times,” said AL Frenzel, FSA State Executive Director “Our recently expanded Coronavirus Food Assistance Program (CFAP) nearly 60 new crops and we need to be available to receive and process applications as long as we can continue to keep our customers and employees safe in the process.“

Online services are still available to customers, including our new Box and OneSpan functionality that enable customers to sign and share FSA and NRCS documents with USDA Service Center staff in just a few clicks. Producers can get started with a simple username and password for Box or, for OneSpan, a quick identity verification. Additional 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. Through the FSA website, customers can access certain FSA programs and view FSA data, including maps, on FSAfarm+.  Customers who do not already have an eAuth account can enroll at farmers.gov/sign-in.
