2014 NRCS Farm Bill Conservation Programs

The 2014 Farm Bill was enacted on February 7, 2014. NRCS offers voluntary Farm Bill conservation programs that benefit both agricultural producers and the environment.

Some programs will be available immediately, while others will require limited time to be set up within the agency. Details are on each program page and at your local USDA Service Center.


NEW FOR FISCAL YEAR 2019 -- All State Payment Schedules will be posted on the National NRCS website.

Current Farm Bill contracts remain in effect; new sign-up information will be announced as it becomes available.

Conservation programs under the 2014 Farm Bill are:

Financial Assistance - NRCS offers financial and technical assistance to help agricultural producers make and maintain conservation improvements on their land.

Easements - NRCS offers easement programs to eligible landowners to conserve working agricultural lands, wetlands, grasslands and forestlands.

Partnerships - NRCS works with partners to leverage additional conservation assistance for agricultural producers and landowners in priority conservation areas.
