March 31, 2021 is the Application Deadline for CSP Funding Consideeration

The USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), in South Carolina, has established March 31, 2021, as the deadline for all Conservation Stewardship Program (CSP) applications to be received for funding consideration in 2021.  Through CSP, NRCS helps farmers, livestock producers and forest landowners earn payments for expanding conservation activities while maintaining agricultural production on their land. CSP also encourages adoption of new technologies and management techniques.For additional information about CSP, contact your local service center. USDA Service Centers are open for business by phone appointment only and field work will continue with appropriate social distancing. While program delivery staff will continue to come into the office, they will be working with producers by phone, and using online tools whenever possible. All Service Center visitors wishing to conduct business with NRCS, Farm Service Agency, or any other Service Center agency are required to call their Service Center to schedule a phone appointment.
