The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS) in Georgia is accepting Conservation Stewardship Program (CSP) renewal applications through March 20. Local NRCS offices mailed contract renewal modification letters to all participants whose contracts expire this year, and the letters contain instructions on how to apply.
For 2014-1 CSP contract holders, only those who extended their contracts for one year in 2019 will be eligible for renewal. Participants with existing 2015-1 CSP contracts expiring on May 14, 2020 and 2016-1 CSP contracts expiring on December 31, 2020 can renew their contracts for an additional five years if they agree to adopt additional activities to achieve higher levels of conservation on their lands.
