New Farm Bill Program to Help Protect Longleaf’s Legacy for Future Generations

A new Farm Bill program named the Regional Conservation Partnership Program, or RCPP, is helping to protect longleaf's legacy for future generations. RCPP allows partners (such as landowners, conservation organizations, states, and others) to develop projects that utlize U.S. Department of Agriculture dollars to leverage additional support for conservation.  Some of the RCPP's funding is directed to the longleaf pine range due to longleaf's designation as a critical conservation area.

RCPP puts our partners – landowners, conservation organizations, states and others — in the driver’s seat by allowing them to develop projects that utilize USDA dollars to leverage additional support for conservation. Some of RCPP’s funding is dedicated to priority landscapes, or what we call critical conservation areas. The Longleaf Pine Range is one of those areas. - See more at: http://blogs.usda.gov/2015/02/06/new-farm-bill-program-to-help-protect-longleafs-legacy-for-future-generations/#sthash.0iCPYyDw.dpuf
