10 ENVIRONMENTAL COMPLIANCE ASSISTANCE FUND Helping Make CREP Even Easier  Farmers seeking to participate in the Farm Service Agency’s (FSA’s) Conservation Reserve Enhancement Program (CREP) are elgible for ECAF loans.  Farmers participating in CREP may receive an ECAF loan to cover the upfront costs such as: fencing, wells/pump houses/ watering stations, & riparian buffers.  The ECAF loan can cover the upfront costs of these items preventing the farmer from having to come out of pocket.  The VSBFA takes a lien on the assets financed and an assignment of the CREP grant.  Once the assets are in place and the CREP payment is made, the ECAF loan is repaid with a direct payment from FSA to the VSBFA.
