NRCS's natural resources conservation programs help people reduce soil erosion, enhance water supplies, improve water quality, increase wildlife habitat, and reduce damages caused by floods and other natural disasters. Public benefits include enhanced natural resources that help sustain agricultural productivity and environmental quality while supporting continued economic development, recreation, and scenic beauty.
NRCS-Michigan Conservation Financial Assistance
NRCS has several programs that provide financial assistance to agricultural producers to implement new conservation measures. Other programs allows landowners to sell development rights to their land that require the land to be maintained as wetlands or for specific agricultural uses.
