Q.Planting crown vetch on a steep slope

I have a slip at my house and I would like to know how to soy crown vetch on a steep slope and have it stick to the ground, instead of the crown vetch rolling to the bottom of the hill?

Try something like a straw blanket with netting. Here is an example: https://www.lowes.com/pd/Hanes-Geo-Components-112-5-ft-x-96-in-Straw-Biodegradable-Single-Net-Blanket/3316406

Check your state for rules on planting crown vetch. It is an invasive species and some states list it as restricted. https://plants.usda.gov/factsheet/pdf/fs_cova2.pdf
