USDA announces $12.5 million in Conservation Grant funding

SALINA, Kansas June 7, 2019—USDA announced today it is investing up to $12.5 million to help support the adoption of innovative conservation approaches on agricultural lands. USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) is accepting proposals through July 30, 2019 for national Conservation Innovation Grants (CIG) and through June 14, 2019 for State CIG funding opportunities. CIG projects inspire creative problem-solving that boosts production on farms, ranches, and private forests. Ultimately, they improve water quality, soil health, and wildlife habitat. All U.S.-based nonfederal entities and individuals are eligible to apply.

Conservation Innovation Grants enable partners to co-invest with NRCS on the next generation of agricultural conservation solutions,” said Kansas NRCS State Conservationist, Karen A. Woodrich. “Conservation Innovation Grants have helped spur new tools and technologies to conserve natural resources, build resilience in their operations, and improve their bottom lines, and we’re excited to see what these proposals will offer.”
