Regional Conservation Partnership Program (RCPP)

The Regional Conservation Partnership Program (RCPP) promotes coordination of NRCS conservation activities with partners that offer value-added contributions to expand our collective ability to address on-farm, watershed, and regional natural resource concerns.  RCPP projects may include any combination of authorized, on-the-ground conservation activities implemented by farmers, ranchers, and forest landowners. These activities include: land management, improvement, or restoration practices. The most successful RCPP projects share four common characteristics–they innovate, leverage additional contributions, offer impactful solutions, and engage an active and effective partnership.
