About The Program

The Conservation Stewardship Program (CSP) helps landowners build on existing conservation efforts while strengthening their operation.

Whether landowners are looking to improve grazing conditions, increase crop yields, or develop wildlife habitat, NRCS can custom design a CSP plan to help landowners meet their goals. NRCS can help schedule timely planting of cover crops, develop a grazing plan that will improve forage base, implement no-till to reduce erosion or manage forested areas in a way that benefits wildlife habitat. CSP can help find new ways to meet these goals even if landowners are already taking steps to improve the condition of their land. This program can be used to benefit pollinators through the establishment or improvement of pollinator habitat.
