Conservation Stewardship Program (CSP) Maps

The Conservation Stewardship Program (CSP) is a voluntary conservation program that encourages producers to address resource concerns in a comprehensive manner by undertaking additional conservation activities, and improving, maintaining, and managing existing conservation activities. CSP represents a significant shift in how USDA provides conservation program payments. CSP participants receive an annual land use payment for the operation-level environmental benefits they produce. Participants are paid for conservation performance - the higher the operational performance, the higher the payment. CSP is available on Tribal and private agricultural lands and non-industrial private forest land in all 50 States and the Caribbean and Pacific Islands Areas. The program provides equitable access to all producers, regardless of operation size, crops produced, or geographic location.

To learn more see CSP. The data used to make these maps is available in a downloadable csv file.
