Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) announces January 27, 2023 as the application cutoff date for the general signup for the Conservation Stewardship Program (CSP) in New York for Fiscal Year (FY) 2023.

NRCS will work with applicants to assess resource concerns on their land to establish a benchmark stewardship condition, and work with the applicants to select practices and enhancements that will achieve higher levels of conservation.

Applications accepted after January 27 will be considered in the next signup. All applications are competitive and are ranked based on national, state and locally identified resource priorities and the overall benefit to the environment.
