CONSERVATION SPENDING

USDA is spending $328 million to help landowners protect and restore key farmlands, grasslands and wetlands across the nation. The funding is provided through the Agricultural Conservation Easement Program (ACEP), which was created in the 2014 Farm Bill to protect critical wetlands. The Mississippi River basin is one of the targeted areas.
