WHAT IS CREP?
The Conservation Reserve Enhancement Program (CREP) is a component of the USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) Conservation Reserve Program (CRP). CREP is a public-private partnership program, allowing states, Tribal governments, non-profit and private entities to partner with UDSA to implement CRP practices that address high priority conservation and environmental objectives. Partners work with FSA to develop CREP agreements designed to address conservation goals on agricultural lands in specific geographic areas. Possible conservation practices that can be implemented include riparian buffers, filter strips, wetlands, and pollinator plantings. Partners work with FSA to define practices that achieve substantial on-site and off-site natural resource benefits targeting one or more of the following goals:
- Restore/establish wildlife habitat
- Enhance water quality
- Reduce soil erosion
- Enhance air quality
- Restore/enhance wetlands
- Increase control of critical invasive species
- Enhance critical threatened and endangered plant and animal species survival.
