FY-2003 Conservation Program Allocations to States

These maps show the amounts distributed to Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) State offices for operating four conservation programs in fiscal year 2003: Environmental Quality Incentives Program, Farm and Ranch Lands Protection Program, Wetlands Reserve Program, and Wildlife Habitat Incentives Program.

These programs were reauthorized in the Farm Security and Rural Investment Act of 2002 (Farm Bill). Through these programs, NRCS helps farmers, ranchers, and other landowners plan and implement conservation measures to solve natural resource concerns on their operations, maintain and improve agricultural land, and protect the environment.
