Applicants who would like to implement conservation ‘smart’ practices on their farmland in Montgomery County have until Friday, November 18, 2022 to submit an application for funding. The Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) is funded by the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service. Applications received in our office by the deadline above will be considered for funding in 2023. As Sheldon Hightower, Tennessee NRCS State Conservationist noted, “EQIP places a priority on water quality, water conservation, and promotes soil health practices, by offering financial and technical assistance to address these resource concerns on eligible agricultural land.”
EQIP is an incentives-based program that provides technical and financial assistance for conservation systems such as animal waste management facilities, irrigation system efficiency improvements, fencing, and water supply development for improved grazing management, riparian protection, wildlife habitat enhancement, and cover crops for soil resource protection.
For more details on applying for this program, contact our office at 931-368-0252 x 3 or visit the office of the Montgomery County Soil & Water Conservation District, Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Applications can also be found HERE. RETURN ALL FORMS TO: email@example.com
