Conservation Partners Program

The Conservation Partners Program provides vital grant funding to support organizations that provide staff and technical assistance to private landowners in order to maximize the benefits of Farm Bill programs on working lands.


Private landowners are stewards of more than two-thirds of our nation’s land, including some of the most important fish and wildlife habitats in the United States. Every year, farmers, ranchers, and forest landowners voluntarily participate in federal Farm Bill conservation programs designed to address some of the nation’s most pressing conservation issues.

The Conservation Partners Program awards competitive grants that accelerate the adoption of regenerative agriculture principles and conservation practices on private lands. Grant recipients provide technical assistance to landowners and operators to help them:

  • Develop management plans, 
  • Design and implement best practices, 
  • Participate in Farm Bill programs, and 
  • Share their experiences and lessons learned.

Grants are geographically targeted to place expert staff where they can both fulfill unmet technical assistance needs and maximize the soil, water, and wildlife benefits of Farm Bill conservation programs.
