Voluntary Stewardship Program

Welcome VSP Administrators

Washington State’s Voluntary Stewardship Program (VSP) provides an alternative approach for counties to address our state’s Growth Management Act requirements. The program uses a watershed-based, incentive-based process to protect critical areas, promote viable agriculture, and encourage cooperation among diverse stakeholders.
