USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) in Florida wants to remind folks across the state they will be investing $300,000 in Conservation Innovation Grants (CIG) for high tunnel systems that improve weather resiliency and improve degraded plant conditions.

Grants from $5,000 to $75,000 will be awarded to applicants matching those funds on a dollar-for-dollar basis from non-federal sources that can include cash or in-kind contributions.

Florida State Conservationist Juan Hernandez explains who can apply for these grants.
