2010 Annual Report CSP

2010 Annual Report - Conservation Security Program

The Conservation Stewardship Program (CSP) is a voluntary program providing financial and technical assistance promoting the conservation and improvement of soil, water, air, energy, plant and animal life, and other conservation purposes on Tribal and private working lands.

The 2008 Farm Bill replaced the Conservation Security Program with the new Conservation Stewardship Program for fiscal years 2009 through 2017. The program may enroll more than 12.7 million acres each fiscal year. Acreage will be allocated based primarily on each state’s or area’s proportion of eligible acres to the total number of all eligible acres.

The 2008 Farm Bill provides for funding for all current Conservation Security Program contracts. In 2010, $7,523,824 was paid on 828 Conservation Security Program contracts.
