from the funding source:

The Regional Conservation Partnership Program (RCPP) is an innovative approach to investing in natural resource conservation that empowers partnerships to design solutions and deliver specific, measurable results. RCPP draws on local knowledge and networks to accelerate progress on critical conservation projects. Partners are in the driver's seat with technical and financial help from NRCS. Through RCPP, NRCS seeks to achieve:

1. Solutions. Investing in projects that generate near-term results that are measurable from environmental, economic, and social perspectives.
2. Contributions. Leveraging the Federal resources to at least double the total investment in conservation projects.
3. Innovation. Promoting innovative projects that integrate multiple conservation approaches to deliver comprehensive and measurable solutions.
4. Participation. Maximizing the number of partners and participants, including those with a proven track record and those new to NRCS-administered conservation programs, to participate in and contribute to projects.

Successful RCPP proposals will bring an array of financial and technical capabilities to projects, will demonstrate experience with working effectively and collaboratively with agricultural producers and private forest landowners across the landscape, and will present innovative, sustainable and measurable approaches to achieving important conservation goals.
