Through the North Dakota Riparian Project CREP, federal and state resources are available for landowners to enroll in CRP in portions of Adams, Billings, Bowman, Burleigh, Dunn, Emmons, Grant, Golden Valley, Hettinger, McKenzie, Mercer, Morton, Oliver, Sioux, Slope and Stark counties (see map). Participants establish herbaceous cover in a combination of practices including riparian buffers (CP22), filter strips (CP21) and pollinators (CP42 and CP42B).
Participants must enroll land into a USDA CRP contract and a Department Private Land Open To Sportsman agreement simultaneously. The Department will assist landowners with the enrollment process. Enrollment is on a continuous basis. Landowners can apply at their local county USDA service center, or they can contact a Department Private Lands Biologist in their area.
Under the North Dakota Riparian Project CREP, eligible participants receive a combination of USDA and Department PLOTS payments.
