Cost-Share Resources

USDA’s Conservation Stewardship Program provides financial and technical assistance to eligible producers to conserve and enhance soil, water, air and related resources on their land.

The NRCS Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) provides producers with financial resources and one-on-one help to plan and implement conservation practices that lead to cleaner water and air, healthier soil and better wildlife habitat, all while improving agricultural operations. 

The USDA’s Agricultural Management Assistance program is available in 16 states to help producers implement conservation practices that reduce financial risk and that can be used to construct and improve water management and irrigation structures.
