Regional Conservation Partnership Program (RCPP)
The Regional Conservation Partnership Program (RCPP) promotes coordination between NRCS and its partners to deliver conservation assistance to producers and landowners. NRCS provides assistance to producers through partnership agreements and through program contracts or easement agreements.
Eligible partners include private companies, universities, non-profit organizations, local and tribal governments, and district governments, to invest money, manpower and materials to their proposed initiatives.
Assistance is delivered in accordance with the rules of EQIP, CSP, ACEP and HFRP; and in certain areas the Watershed Operations and Flood Prevention Program. Alaska priorities are steam habitat, wildlife habitat, and flood control. For example, conservation work could involve culvert replacement for fish passage, habitat management for wildlife, and flood control structures. RCPP national web page.
