Conservation Activity Plan Support Documents

This page provides documents which support Technical Service Provider development of Conservation Activity Plans.

Document types include:  CAP Technical Criteria, CAP Technical Criteria Checklists and CAP Plan Templates.

These documents are also available in Section III of the Vermont electronic Field Office Technical Guide.


The Technical Criteria documents establish the minimum criteria to be addressed in the development of each specific type of CAP plan.

VT NRCS Forest Management CAP Plans (106) will be developed using the Vermont Conservation Activity Plan Checklist 106 as a guide.  In addition, the TSP will certify that they have met the NRCS Forest Management Conservation Activity Plan requirements by completing the checklist and signing at the top of page 2.  Please review the following fact sheets concerning Plan Development  and Applications/Contracts.
