USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) in Alabama has announced the 2020 Conservation Stewardship Program Classic and Renewal (CStP) sign-up for farmers, ranchers and private landowners to apply for financial and technical assistance. The application deadline for renewals is March 20, 2020 and May 29, 2020 for the classic sign-up.
NRCS accepts CStP applications throughout the year but makes funding selections at specific times during the fiscal year. NRCS is encouraging Alabama producers and private landowners to submit their applications as soon as possible because funding is limited. NRCS provided over $4 million in CStP funding to eligible Alabama farmers, ranchers, forest landowners, and private landowners in Fiscal Year 2019.
