The United States Department of Agriculture, Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) is committed to helping private landowners care for the land, use it productively, and excel as stewards for the future. Through voluntary incentive-based programs, NRCS works directly with farmers and landowners to provide technical and financial assistance to make conservation work on private lands.
Taking care of the landscape in concert with agricultural productivity is our goal. Whether it’s reducing erosion, improving soil health, guarding streams and rivers, restoring and establishing fish and wildlife habitat, bringing in pollinators, improving air quality or conserving energy, we’re here to help you develop a conservation plan and achieve your conservation goals.

Wetland Reserve Easements provide technical and financial assistance directly to private landowners and Indian tribes to restore, protect, and enhance wetlands through purchasing easements. Agricultural Land Easements provide financial assistance to eligible partners for purchasing easements that protect the agricultural use and conservation values of eligible land.
