The new USDA Regional Conservation Partnership Program (RCPP) designates $370 million of federal funding to support 115 projects in all 50 states and Puerto Rico. The projects are also estimated to receive an additional $400 million in partner contributions. RCPP awards funds to projects designed by local partners for conservation purposes, including improving wildlife habitat on private lands.
