Applications due May 10 for Conservation Stewardship Program

Colorado landowners have until Friday, May 10 to submit an application for enrollment into the Natural Resources Conservation Service’s (NRCS) Conservation Stewardship Program (CSP). Eligible applications received after the cutoff period may be considered during a later time and will be processed throughout the fiscal year as needed.Applications are accepted at all Colorado NRCS offices and USDA Service Centers.

CSP provides voluntary financial assistance for conservation systems and helps you build on your existing conservation efforts while strengthening your operation. Whether you are looking to improve grazing conditions, increases crop yields, or develop wildlife habitat, we can custom design a CSP plan to help you meet those goals. Organizers can help schedule timely planting of cover crops, develop a grazing plan that will improve your forage base, implement no-till to reduce erosion or manage forested areas in a way that benefits wildlife habitat. If you are already taking steps to improve the condition of the land, chances are CSP can help you find new ways to meet your goals.

The NRCS office that services Moffat County is located at 145 Commerce St. Craig, CO 81625. Applications must be received by 4 p.m. Friday, May 10.

To find out more information about CSP please visit and select the Programs link or contact Kendall Smith at 970-329-3156.
