CCPI provides targeted assistance to producers for enhancing conservation outcomes on agricultural and nonindustrial private forest land. All funding for projects will go directly to eligible producers in the selected area. Areas of CCPI assistance are selected competitively through applications of eligible partners. With CCPI, partners request assistance for a specific project area or resource concern. Potential partners may submit proposals that request assistance for a specified project area which may be defined by geo-political boundaries, watershed boundaries, or resource concern. For the partnership proposals that are selected, NRCS directs conservation program funding to eligible private landowners, private nonindustrial forest landowners, farmers, and ranchers who apply.
