Conservation Reserve Enhancement Program
CREP overview
The Oregon Conservation Reserve Enhancement Program (CREP) is available to agricultural landowners to restore riparian areas, protect water quality, and enhance fish and wildlife habitat. CREP was created through a unique partnership between the state of Oregon and the US Department of Agriculture Farm Service Agency.
Agricultural landowners can enroll eligible riparian lands into a 10 to 15-year CREP contract and receive:
  • annual conservation payments for the contract period
  • reimbursement for up to 75% of the eligible costs of restoration practices
  • other financial incentives
