Farm Bill Homepage Feature








The 2018 Farm Bill was enacted December 20, 2018. Through the Farm Bill, USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service helps America’s farmers, ranchers, and land stewards improve their operations and conserve natural resources through a wide array of conservation programs. The 2018 Farm Bill continues its strong support for conservation efforts through reauthorization and expanded flexibility. We’re evaluating changes the Farm Bill made to conservation programs, and we’ll work to implement those changes as quickly as possible.

Conservation Technical Assistance
CTA is not part of the Farm Bill, but is funding authorized by Congress for NRCS and partners to help land users address opportunities, concerns, and problems related to the use of natural resources and help land users make sound natural resource management decisions on private, tribal, and other non-federal lands.  Although the CTA program does not include financial or cost-share assistance, NRCS helps clients develop conservation plans, which may serve as a springboard for those interested in participating in USDA financial assistance programs.
