Announcement for Program Funding for NRCS’s Regional Conservation Partnership Program (RCPP) for Federal Fiscal Year (FY) 2022

The Regional Conservation Partnership Program (RCPP) promotes coordination of NRCS conservation activities with partners that offer value-added contributions to expand our collective ability to address on-farm, watershed, and regional natural resource concerns.

Through RCPP, NRCS seeks to co-invest


with partners to implement projects that demonstrate innovative solutions to conservation challenges and provide measurable improvements and outcomes tied to the resource concerns they seek to address.Using guidance contained in this notice, potential RCPP partners propose projects that generate conservation benefits by addressing specific natural resource objectives in a State/multistate area or address one or more priority resource concerns within an NRCS-designated critical conservation area (CCA).

NRCS and partners collaborate to design, promote, and implement RCPP projects on agricultural and nonindustrial private forest land.

Through RCPP, NRCS may provide both financial and technical assistance funds to project partners and agricultural producers to carry out projects.

RCPP proposals are evaluated through a competitive proposal process based on four criteria:
impact, partner contributions, innovation, and partnership and management.Up to $200 million is available for RCPP projects through this announcement.

Proposals are accepted from all 50 States, the Caribbean Area (Puerto Rico and U. S. Virgin Islands), and U. S. territories in the Pacific Island Areas (Guam, American Samoa, and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands).SUBMISSIONS:
