WRP Application Materials & Documents


Easement Program Funding Expiration - Update

The Agricultural Act of 2014 establishes the Agricultural Conservation Easement Program (ACEP).

It repeals FRPP, GRP, and WRP but does not affect the validity or terms of any FRPP, GRP, or WRP contract, agreement or easement entered into prior to the date of enactment on February 7, 2014 or any associated payments required to be made in connection with an existing FRPP, GRP, or WRP contract, agreement or easement.  

For more information on ACEP, please visit the ACEP web page.


In addition to the application, you will need to file several forms to certify that you are eligible to participate in federal programs.

You may not need all of the forms and documents below.

Please contact your local NRCS office to find out which forms you will need and for assistance with completing these forms.
