A note about the timing of conservation funding opportunities:

  • Not all payments described in this guide are available all the time. Some programs (like the CRP Continuous Signup) are open for enrollment year-round but most programs have intermittent signups, sometimes on short notice.
  • The guide includes general information on the timing of opportunities to enroll in each program, plus contact information to find out when the next opportunity will occur.
