NRCS Forest Landowner Incentive Programs
To recognize and reward landowners for their forest management, the federal Natural Resources and Conservation Service has financial incentive programs to help you manage your lands as a forest. This is simply a monetary payment to you for continuing to sustainably manage your forest. Kind of like a Conservation Reserve Program except you don’t have to change anything you are doing.
There is a continuous sign up for both Conservation Stewardship Program (CSP) and Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP).  Landowners can sign up for 2013 EQIP funding after June 1.
