2014 Farm Bill Streamlines and Consolidates Conservation Programs
The 2014 Farm Bill is streamlining key conservation programs while investing approximately $18.7 billion in conservation programs offered by USDA's Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) over the next five years. The bill provides approximately $3.4 billion for NRCS-administered programs this fiscal year.
Key Program Changes:
  • Easement programs:  The agency's key easement programs will be merged into a new program called the Agricultural Conservation Easement Program, or ACEP
  • ACEP includes the former Wetlands Reserve Program, Grasslands Reserve Program and Farm and Ranchlands Protection Program.
  • Current easements enrolled in Farm Bill programs are not affected.
