Alabama Now Accepting Regional Conservation Partnership Program Applications (RCPP)

January 12, 2024

AUBURN, AL, January 12th, 2024 – USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) today announced that it is accepting applications for its Regional Conservation Partnership Program (RCPP) through February 16th, 2024.

In Alabama, The Nature Conservancy (TNC) plans to reduce sedimentation, pollution, nutrient runoff, and other stresses within several waterbodies in the Paint Rock, Big Canoe Creek, and Locust Fork watersheds. Implementing streambank restoration practices along these targeted waterbodies will improve water quality for unique aquatic biota and the public water supply; reduce property loss for agricultural producers who own property along these waterways; and support the multi-partner goal of protecting Strategic Habitat Units (SHUs) in the state of Alabama.

Eligible conservation practices include Streambank Restoration and Riparian Buffer establishment, as well as supporting practices such as Exclusion Fencing and Livestock Watering Systems. 

Those interested within the priority watersheds (eligibility map and Ranking Pool Report are available below) should contact their local NRCS Field office in the county where the land is located Service Center Locator | Natural Resources Conservation Service ( The eligible watersheds are located within Blount, Etowah, Jackson, Jefferson, Madison, Marshall, and St. Clair counties.
