The USDA-Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) has established a second funding application deadline of Feb. 12, 2021, for the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP).
Applications received by the February 12 deadline will be ranked for funding by early June.
Producers interested in signing up for EQIP should submit applications to their local USDA service center. If already a USDA client, a producer can submit applications online via Farmers.gov.
EQIP is a voluntary program that provides financial and technical assistance to agricultural producers. Technical assistance is provided without a fee from NRCS specialists to help landowners and land managers plan and implement conservation practices to help them meet their land management goals, address natural resource concerns and improve soil, water, plant, animal, air, and related resources on agricultural land and non-industrial private forestland.
