The following two maps display information on Grassland Reserve Program (GRP) projects that were enrolled in fiscal year 2004.
This voluntary program offers landowners the opportunity to protect, restore, and enhance grasslands on their property. The Natural Resources Conservation Service, Farm Service Agency and Forest Service are coordinating implementation of GRP, which helps landowners restore and protect grassland, rangeland, pastureland, shrubland and certain other lands and provides assistance for rehabilitating grasslands. The program will conserve vulnerable grasslands from conversion to cropland or other uses and conserve valuable grasslands by helping maintain viable ranching operations. In FY-2004, NRCS enrolled more than 1055 projects covering over 283,000 acres into the program. Click on each map's data link for detail information.
