Cooperative Conservation Partnership Initiative

With the enactment of the Agricultural Act (February 7, 2014), the new Regional Conservation Partnership Program (RCPP) combines the authorities of four former programs - Agricultural Water Enhancement Program, the Chesapeake Bay Watershed Program, the Cooperative Conservation Partnership Initiative and the Great Lakes Basin Program. RCPP delivers assistance through covered programs, including EQIP, CSP, ACEP and HFRP, and Watershed and Flood Prevention Operations in Critical Conservation Areas.
