Delivering easy to obtain, secure and private online access to USDA programs and services.
More Access with Fewer Passwords
USDA eAuthentication(eAuth) is the system used by USDA agencies to enable individual customers and employees to obtain accounts that will allow them to access USDA Web applications and services via the Internet.
A single eAuth account saves time and reduces the number of passwords for users by providing effortless access to multiple online resources, programs and benefits to view or conduct official business via the Internet with USDA. This includes submitting forms electronically, completing surveys online, and checking the status of USDA accounts.
Our goal is to protect your personal information. The authentication and security encryption standards and practices we implement ensure your information is protected.
