Development of the Regional Conservation Partnership Program (RCPP) following passage of the 2018 Farm Bill resulted in the establishment of three new NRCS easement programs—RCPP Entity-held Easements, RCPP U.S.-held Easements and RCPP Alternative Funding Arrangements Easements. Within the past year, program policy, minimum deed terms and deed templates have been published and projects have started moving easements through the various steps toward closure. In this session, participants will get a status update on RCPP and learn about the distinct policy and procedural approaches of the three types of RCPP easements. Participants will walk away with an understanding of how the three RCPP easement types differ and which type might work best for their proposed project.
