AUBURN, November 10, 2016 – The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) will accept and process applications for enrollment in the Conservation Stewardship Program (CSP) beginning November 14, 2016. CSP is the nation’s largest conservation program. Applications will be made available in local service centers.
NRCS has made several updates to the program this year to help producers better evaluate their conservation options and the benefits to their operations and natural resources.
“This year, the Conservation Stewardship Program provides even more opportunities for conservation and greater flexibility at the local level to prioritize resource concerns and conservation approaches,” says Ben Malone. “Customized CSP tools for Alabama will improve the customer experience during application evaluations.”
NRCS offices will begin processing applications for the program on November 14, 2016, with sign-up running through February 3, 2017.
