USDA accepts applications for Idaho Wetlands Preservation Program

The Natural Resources Conservation Service, a division of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, has announced that it is accepting applications for an ongoing easement program.

NRCS encourages agricultural producers and landowners to look into this

According to USDA:

“The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is accepting applications from Agricultural producers and forest owners in Idaho for the Agricultural Conservation Easement Program – Wetland Reserve Easements (ACEP-WRE), which helps landowners and producers restore, protect and enhance wetlands on eligible lands. Wetland reserve easements are either perpetual or have a 30-year term.

While USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) accepts ACEP-WRE applications year-round, Idaho producers and landowners should apply by August 2 to be considered for funding in fiscal year 2025, which begins October 1. Applications received after the application deadline will automatically be considered in the next funding cycle. Funding will be provided through a competitive process.”
