The CREP Program
The Conservation Reserve Enhancement Program (CREP) is designed to restore floodplain, erodible land adjacent to the floodplain, and wetlands throughout eligible areas, which includes all or part of 68 counties in Illinois within the Illinois and Kaskaskia River Basins. CREP focuses on important local and national environmental issues, such as water quality and loss of critical habitat for threatened and endangered species as identified in Illinois' Wildlife Action Plan.
