Protecting and Enhancing our Natural Resources

NRCS offers easement programs to landowners who want to maintain or enhance their land in a way beneficial to agriculture and/or the environment. All NRCS easement programs are voluntary. We provide technical help and financial assistance, but local landowners and organizations are needed to make NRCS easement programs successful.

Our easement programs are:

Agricultural Conservation Easement Program
Healthy Forests Reserve Program (no funding in current Farm Bill)
