NRCS uses landscape conservation intiatives to accelerate the benefits of voluntary conservation programs, such as cleaner water and air, healthier soil and enhanced wildlife habitat.
NRCS works with partners to leverage additional conservation assistance for agricultural producers and landowners in priority conservation areas.
NRCS offers financial and technical assistance to help agricultural producers make and maintain conservation improvements on their land.
NRCS offers easement programs to landowners who want to maintain or enhance their land in a way beneficial to agriculture 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.
