NRCS-PA Offers Expanded Conservation Program Opportunities To Support Climate-Smart Agriculture In 2022

On January 11, The U.S. Department of Agriculture Natural Resources Conservation Service 
announced several new and expanded opportunities for climate-smart agriculture in 2022. 

Updates include nationwide availability of the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) Conservation Incentive Contracts option, a new and streamlined EQIP Cover Crop Initiative, and added flexibilities for producers to easily re-enroll in the Conservation Stewardship Program (CSP). 

These improvements to NRCS’ working lands conservation programs, combined with continued program opportunities in Pennsylvania, are part of the Biden-Harris Administration’s broader effort to support climate-smart agriculture.

“Climate change is happening, and America’s agricultural communities are on the frontlines,” NRCS State Conservationist Denise Coleman said. “We have to continue to support and expand the adoption of conservation approaches to support producers in their work to address the climate crisis and build more resilient operations. We are continuously working to improve our programs to ensure we’re giving Pennsylvania farmers the best tools to conserve natural resources.”
