Budget cuts could reduce the funding for conservation programs in the next federal fiscal year, but the long-term outlook is relatively bright for funds in support of conservation.1 Pressure from the World Trade Organization to cut trade-distorting commodity programs means that the agricultural sector will have to be stabilized with funding through other channels, notably conservation. Thus, conservation programs are expected to become increasingly important channels for government funds to the sector.
