Georgia Conservation Stewardship Program (CSP)
CSP is a voluntary program that provides financial and technical assistance to promote the conservation and improvement of soil, water, air, energy, plant and animal life, and other conservation purposes on Tribal and private working lands. Working lands include cropland, grassland, prairie land, improved pasture, and range land, as well as forested land that is an incidental part of an agriculture operation. The program provides equitable access to benefits to all producers, regardless of size of operation, crops produced, or geographic location.
Farmers in Georgia watershed are eligible to apply for the Conservation Stewardship Program in 2009. To be considered for funding in this first cycle, applications must be received by September 30, 2009.
1. All producers must complete a self-assessment to determine their eligibility. Self-assessment worksheets are available at the local NRCS offices and also available online. Completed worksheets should be taken to local NRCS offices along with proof of control of the land and maps of the property. If you are not eligible for CSP, you may be eligible for other conservation programs such as the Environmental Quality Incentives Program, the Wildlife Habitat Incentives Program, the Wetlands Reserve Program, etc.
Producers who may not be eligible can find out about programs that can help them achieve a higher level of conservation so that they may apply for CSP in the future.
