NRCS Accepting Applications For Conservation Programs


Natural Resource Conservation Service

Landowners interested in implementing conservation practices on their land may be eligible for financial assistance. The Natural Resources Conservation Service is taking applications through December 21st for the latest round of funding.

Cheryl Grapes, assistant conservationist with the Wyoming NRCS, says there are a variety of programs to help people do things like reduce soil erosion, enhance water supply and improve its quality, or restore wildlife habitat. And While a Farm Bill has yet to be passed by Congress, Grapes says, they continue at the NRCS to work with the programs already in place. Project examples might be installation of livestock waste management systems, introduction of enhanced grazing practices, or improved irrigation systems.

Grapes says, every day is Earthday for farmers and Ranchers, “And I think that’s such a good way to look at it, because they’re the ones who help us maintain clean air, clean water, wildlife habitat, all of those things that we all get to enjoy, really begin on private lands.”

Grapes says the project types and the costs to implement vary greatly and she says thats why its important to contact the Natural Resource Council offices nearest you.

Applications are available at your local USDA Service Center or NRCS field office listed under United States Government in your community phone directory.
