CREP Technical Assistance Grants
About CREP Technical Assistance Grants
Conservation Reserve Enhancement Program
The Conservation Reserve Enhancement Program (CREP) is a voluntary program for agricultural landowners. This unique state and federal partnership allows landowners to receive incentive payments and conservation rental payments from the Farm Services Agency (FSA) for establishing long-term, riparian buffers on eligible land.
