The Conservation Security Program (CSP) was not reauthorized in the 2008 Farm Bill and is no longer available. Because prior year recipients may need to refer to CSP information, this online archive has been established.

A program in the 2008 Farm Bill, the Conservation Stewardship Program, is very similar to the Conservation Security Program.

Overview

The Conservation Security Program (CSP) is a voluntary program that provides financial and technical assistance to promote the conservation and improvement of soil, water, air, energy, plant and animal life, and other conservation purposes on Tribal and private working lands. Working lands include cropland, grassland, prairie land, improved pasture, and range land, as well as forested land that is an incidental part of an agriculture operation. For 2008, the PI authorized CSP watersheds are the Hawaii (Hamakua-Kau) and the Southern Guam watershed. Administered by the Natural Resources Conservation Service, CSP rewards the best land stewards.
