Conservation Stewardship Program

Agriculture, Environmental, Forestry, Stewardship

Thomas L. Morgart, Connecticut State Conservationist for the USDA-Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) has announced a second application period for the agency’s Conservation Stewardship Program (CSP).

CSP is perfect for agricultural producers who want to continue to farm, or forest landowners wanting to manage their forestland, but want to use less resources and have less of an effect on the land. Some of the benefits include increased crop yields, decreased inputs, wildlife population improvements, and better resilience to weather extremes.

While applications for CSP are accepted year-round, to be considered for FY2023 funds they must be received by February 17, 2023.
