Protecting grasslands contributes to the economy of many regions, provides plant and animal population biodiversity and improves environmental quality. This program often benefits livestock and dairy farmers who graze their animals.

This year, USDA updated signup options to provide incentives for producers and increase conservation benefits, including reducing the impacts of climate change. CRP Grasslands is competitive and will provide for annual rental payments for land devoted to conservation purposes.
