Farmers' Guide to the Conservation Stewardship Program



National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition

This guide provides an overview of the Conservation Stewardship Program (CSP), highlighting who is eligible for the program, how you can apply, why its benefits are so critical, and where current CSP contracts are located throughout the country. It also provides a comprehensive look at the past five years of contracts awarded under the 2008 Farm Bill (2009-2013). Additionally, the guide identifies changes that were made under the most recent 2014 Farm Bill, and provides resources to help readers find regularly updated information about sign-ups and benefits from USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Services (NRCS), the agency that administers the program.
