According to a news release, three of the most popular USDA conservation programs are included in this signup period are the Agricultural Conservation Easement Program-Wetland Reserve Easements (ACEP-WRE); the Conservation Stewardship Program (CSP); and the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP).

NRCS accepts program applications on a continuous basis but sets application cutoff dates as program funding allows. Interested producers and landowners should submit applications to their local NRCS office by the Oct. 1 application cutoff to ensure they are considered for 2022 funding.
