The launch of USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) updated Regional Conservation Partnership Program (RCPP) continues. And to provide information for those interested, Florida NRCS held a RCPP Workshop Wednesday at the Florida Farm Bureau office in Gainesville. Nina Bhattacharyya, assistant state conservationist for partnerships in Florida, told Southeast AgNet they had a great meeting.
RCPP eligible partners include private industry, non-government organizations, Indian tribes, state and local governments, water districts and universities. And Nina reminds those partners interested in RCPP what needs to be done to apply.
A second workshop will be held October 23 from 10am – 12:30pm at the Bert J. Harris Jr. Agricultural Center Auditorium in Sebring. It will also cover program requirements, the application process, and project evaluations.
