Climate Smart Agriculture

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has made a significant commitment of $1.5 billion to support conservation and climate-smart agriculture through the Regional Conservation Partnership Program (RCPP). This program, which provides financial and technical assistance to farmers, ranchers, and forest landowners, is a testament to the USDA’s dedication to improving water quality, soil health, wildlife habitat, and climate resiliency.
The RCPP funding, which is expected to be distributed through a competitive application process, offers significant benefits to farmers and ranchers. The USDA is streamlining the application process based on the high demand for financing observed last year. This streamlined process is designed to make it easier for agricultural producers to apply for and receive the financial assistance they need to implement conservation practices on their land, thereby enhancing their operations and contributing to the sustainability of their businesses.
