RIM-WRP is a local-state-federal partnership that combines the state’s Reinvest in Minnesota (RIM) Reserve conservation easement program with the USDA Wetlands Reserve Program (WRP).
Combining these two programs allows state funds to leverage federal funds that are available through the Federal Farm Bill. Funding for this partnership is through the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and the Minnesota Board of Water and Soil Resources (BWSR).
The Carver SWCD and NRCS Field Offices are now accepting applications for funding to restore wetlands that have been drained, and have a history of being used for agricultural production.
For more information about the RIM-WRP program, please visit the BWSR website.
