Support the CRP Reform Act
NGFA members: 

Contact your senators to urge them to support the CRP Reform Act of 2023 sponsored by Sens. Cory Booker, D-N.J., and Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa. The bill would reform the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) to focus future enrollments on marginal farmland rather than prime farmland. 

The CRP Reform Act would codify into law several reforms to U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) conservation programs that have been advocated for by NGFA. Among its provisions, the bill: 

  • Maintains CRP’s overall acreage cap at 24 million acres for fiscal years 2024-2028.
  • Reduces the rental rate for general sign-ups to 75 percent.
  • Provides incentives for enrolling marginal land into CRP continuous categories.

The senators note that the CRP Reform Act will generate more durable wildlife and environmental benefits while simultaneously reducing competition for productive farmland between USDA and farmers, especially beginning and socially disadvantaged farmers. The one-page summary of the bill can be found here.

Contact your senators below to support the CRP Reform Act as part of the 2023 Farm Bill.
