The USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) wants producers and landowners to know there are various fiscal year 2022 assistance opportunities available for key programs. This includes the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP), Conservation Stewardship Program (CSP), Agricultural Conservation Easement Program (ACEP) and the Regional Conservation Partnership Program (RCPP).
NRCS Chief Terry Cosby says while there are batching period signups that take place from time to time, they do accept applications for these programs year-round.
Through conservation programs, NRCS provides technical and financial assistance to help producers and landowners make conservation improvements on your land. For more information just contact your local NRCS field office.
