The National Conservation Planning Partnership (NCPP) is conducting a national survey for producers to obtain feedback on specific ways to improve the format, usefulness and value of a conservation plan and improve the delivery of conservation planning assistance.

The survey was developed to expand on the feedback NCPP received in previous employee and customer listening sessions in 2018. Many of the comments and recommendations we have received so far have led to important changes in policy and procedures, new and/or revised training courses, and advances in tools and technology, all geared at streamlining and improving the conservation planning experience.

This survey is an important next step. The results will be used along with earlier feedback to provide producers with an improved conservation planning system that is more personalized and responsive to their needs.

The National Association of Conservation Districts is leading the survey distribution through Survey Monkey. The survey is expected to close on February 15, 2021. 

To ensure that we receive maximum participation, each of the non-federal conservation partners (NACD, RC&D, NCDEA, NASCA) is asking their members and employees to share the survey with your farmers, ranchers, and forest landowners. The survey is available here:

Results of this survey will be available in May 2021 on the NCPP website:
