COST-SHARE ASSISTANCE FOR CONSERVATION PROJECTS

The RCDMC provides free planning and other technical assistance for eligible agricultural conservation projects on agricultural lands, including engineering design and permitting assistance. If your project is eligible, the RCDMC can provide access to cost-share assistance through the USDA NRCS’ Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) program or our other grant-based programs.  For certain projects the RCDMC may also be able to apply for other grant funds on behalf of a cooperating landowner, grower or rancher.

ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY INCENTIVES PROGRAM (EQIP)

The Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) offers financial and technical assistance to eligible participants for the installation of vegetated, structural and management practices on eligible agricultural land. EQIP typically cost-shares at 90 percent of the costs of eligible conservation practices Incentive payments may be provided for up to three years to encourage producers to conduct management practices they would not otherwise do without the incentive. Limited resource producers and beginning farmers and ranchers may be eligible for cost-share up to 90 percent. EQIP sign-up information is available on-line.
