Conservation Stewardship Program

Source: USDA

The Conservation Stewardship Program partners the USDA with farmers who are conserving natural resources to further improve their soil, water, energy systems, and air quality. This grant includes a payment for every natural resource concern addressed and a per-acre payment calculated by acreage across which the practices are implemented. Much like EQIP, farmers work with USDA liaisons to plan and implement their natural resource improvements.
