Emergency Watershed Protection Program- Floodplain Easement Updated:03/2023

The Emergency Watershed Protection - Floodplain Easement (EWPP-FPE) option offers an alternative method to traditional EWP Program Recovery. USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) recommends this option to landowners and others where acquiring an easement is the best approach (more economical and prudent) to reduce threat to life and/or property.

NRCS administers the Emergency Watershed Protection EWP Program, which is designed for emergency recovery work, including the purchase of floodplain easements.   If your land has been damaged by flooding and meets the eligibility requirements, it may qualify for EWP assistance. To request assistance, contact your USDA-NRCS EWP Program Manager
