Transition Incentives Program (TIP) Updated:06/2022

The Transition Incentives Program (TIP) offers assistance for land owners and operators, as well as opportunities for beginning and socially disadvantaged farmers and ranchers. It provides land owners or operators with two additional annual rental payments on land enrolled in expiring Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) contracts, on the condition they sell or rent this land to a beginning farmer or rancher or to a socially disadvantaged group. Up to two additional annual CRP payments can be obtained through TIP. New land owners or renters must return the land to production using sustainable grazing or farming methods.

TIP enrollment is on a continuous basis until the total funds authorized for the program are exhausted. Beginning, veteran, and socially disadvantaged farmers and ranchers and CRP participants may enroll in TIP two years before the scheduled date of CRP contract expiration.
