Do you farm or ranch and want to make improvements to the land that you own or lease? NRCS offers voluntary programs to eligible landowners and agricultural producers that provide financial and technical assistance to help manage natural resources sustainably. 

Our financial assistance programs include the following:

EQIP provides financial and technical assistance to agricultural producers in order to address natural resource concerns and deliver environmental benefits such as improved water and air quality, conserved ground and surface water, reduced soil erosion and sedimentation or improved or created wildlife habitat. More on EQIP.

The Conservation Stewardship Program helps agricultural producers maintain and improve their existing conservation systems and adopt additional conservation activities to address priority resources concerns. Participants earn CSP payments for conservation performance—the higher the performance, the higher the payment. More on CSP.

Other assistance is possible through Conservation Planning, Landscape Initiatives and Easement Programs.
