The Conservation Partners Program provides vital grant funding to support organizations that provide staff and technical assistance to private landowners in order to maximize the benefits of Farm Bill programs on working lands. Private landowners are responsible for the use and management of more than two-thirds of our nation’s land, including some of the most important fish and wildlife habitats in the United States. Every year, farmers, ranchers, foresters, and other landowners voluntarily participate in federal Farm Bill conservation programs designed to address some of the nation’s most pressing conservation issues. Funding for the Conservation Partners Program seeks to build technical assistance capacity in multiple conservation priority areas. (See grant program site for info on specific priority funding areas.)
