Conservation Reserve Program’s Transition Incentives Program

Applications must be submitted by October 14, 2022.
USDA’s Farm Service Agency (FSA) is investing $4.5 million in outreach for the Conservation Reserve Program’s Transition Incentives Program (CRP TIP), which helps with access to land for beginning and socially disadvantaged farmers and ranchers.TIP provides financial incentives to CRP participants with expiring contracts, if they sell or rent the land to a beginning producer, veteran farmer or rancher, or a producer from a socially disadvantaged group. FSA expects to award 15 to 20 partner and stakeholder organizations to conduct outreach and provide technical assistance to promote awareness and understanding of CRP TIP among agricultural communities, in particular those who are military veterans, new to farming, or historically underserved. Eligible applicants include Federally-recognized Indian tribal organizations, State governments, local governments, nonprofit organizations, and higher education institutions.
