May 1, 2013CSP deadline May 31
Applications for the Natural Resources Conservation Service’s (NRCS) Conservation Stewardship Program (CSP) are due May 31. The CSP will provide $175 million in funding for up to 12.6 million additional acres of enrollment this year.
CSP is a voluntary program that allows producers to conserve natural resources while maintaining or increasing productivity of their operations. Farmers, ranchers and forestland owners interested in CSP must submit applications to their local NRCS office to be considered for funding this year.
A CSP self-screening checklist is available to help producers determine if the program is suitable for their operation. The checklist highlights basic information about the CSP eligibility requirements, stewardship threshold requirements and payment types.
