Missouri NRCS Announces Additional Conservation Stewardship Program (CSP) Funding

Missouri NRCS has received additional Conservation Stewardship Program (CSP) funding through the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) providing more opportunities for agricultural producers and forest landowners to participant in CSP. The CSP IRA funds will support implementation of climate-smart activities.

“With the addition of IRA funding, we look forward to providing greater opportunities to address the unmet demand from producers who have sought funding for climate-smart conservation activities in Missouri,” said Scott Edwards, Missouri NRCS State Conservationist.

Targeted CSP IRA funds will provide direct climate-mitigation benefits and will expand access to financial and technical assistance for producers to advance conservation on their farm or forest land through practices like cover cropping, conservation tillage, prescribed grazing, nutrient management, tree planting and more.

NRCS accepts producer applications for its conservation programs year-round. Program funding cutoff dates for the FY 2023 voluntary CSP Classic programs offered through Missouri NRCS are as follows:

CSP- IRA Classic: April 21, 2023, and June 9, 2023

CSP-Classic: April 21, 2023, and June 9, 2023

CSP funding is provided through a competitive process. Producers can submit applications at local NRCS offices. NRCS also offers free technical assistance to all Missouri residents.
