What you will learn:
This presentation examines the potential to tap into Farm Bill programs by expanding the capacity of the federal agencies charged with administering programs ranging from forestry practice cost share to wetland easements.
Following a brief history of the Farm Bill, in place since 1933, this presentation examines the expansion of conservation programs and the use of partnerships. Case studies will show active partnerships with a variety of forestry organizations from state and local government to land trusts. USDA agencies, including NRCS and FSA, have specific roles in program administration and policy development that directly affect program delivery at the state level. Hear how you can make recommendations, assist in establishing ranking criteria and provide technical and program delivery advice through participation on the state technical committee.
