concerns, and problems related to the use of natural resources to assist land users in making sound natural resource management decisions on private, tribal, and other non-federal lands.

The Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) is a voluntary conservation program that promotes agricultural production and environmental quality.

Through EQIP farmers may receive financial and technical assistance to install or implement structural or management practices on eligible agricultural land.

The Agricultural Conservation Easement Program (ACEP), formerly known as the Farm and Ranch Protection Program (FRPP) and the Wetlands Reserve Program (WRP), provide financial and technical assistance to help conserve agricultural lands and wetlands and their related benefits.

Under the Agricultural Land Easements (ALE) component, NRCS helps American Indian tribes, state and local governments and non-governmental organizations protect working agricultural lands and limit non-agricultural uses of the land.

Under the Wetlands Reserve Easements (WRE) component, NRCS helps to restore, protect and enhance enrolled wetlands.
