From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Environmental Conservation Acreage Reserve Program (ECARP) was a United States umbrella program authorized by the 1990 farm bill (P.L. 101-624) that includes the Conservation Reserve Program, and the Wetland Reserve Program. The 1996 farm bill (P.L. 104-127) continued the CRP and WRP and created the Environmental Quality Incentives Program.

The goal of the ECARP was to provide long-term protection of environmentally sensitive land. Contracts, easements, and cost-share payments were used to assist landowners and operators of farms and ranches to conserve and enhance soil, water, and related natural resources, including grazing land, wetland, and wildlife habitat. The 2002 farm bill (P.L. 107-171, Sec. 2006) replaced ECARP with the Comprehensive Conservation Enhancement Program (CCHP).
