The application and renewal system for 2024-2026 GATE cards is now open. Fees for all cards must be paid as part of your online application, by credit card or ACH only. If your GATE certificate has already expired you can not renew it and will need to apply for a new card.
If you do not have an active GATE card, apply for a 2024-2026 card here.
** NOTE ** If your certificate expires in 2024 or later, a new plastic card for 2024 was mailed to you in early November. You do not need to renew your card or take any other action.
You can check the status of your card here. The "GATE Card Payment History" section shows the period for which your GATE card is active.
Active cardholders: is the information on your card not correct? Update your information or request a replacement here.

Refunds and missing cards
You have 45 days after paying for a card to notify GDA if you didn’t receive it. After that, you’ll be charged $30 for a replacement card.
Refunds will only be given for multiple payments on accounts or if a duplicate account has been created. No refunds will be given on a multiple-year GATE card when the farm is sold or is no longer operating.
