Contact Information

The CREP Program is administered by many partners. The local USDA Service Centers house the Farm Service Agency (FSA), Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), and the Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD). These agencies work together to administer the Federal and State sides of the program. They determine eligibility for enrollment and provide technical assistance for approved conservation practices. FSA administers the Federal side of CREP as they do for regular CRP. The Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) administers the State side, and also provides technical assistance. Many other agencies, including the Illinois Department of Agriculture (IDOA), provide support with marketing, monitoring, and program policy.
