USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) in Georgia wants to remind producers and landowners they can seek technical or financial assistance year-round.
You may be aware that NRCS held a signup that ended last week. And while applications for funding is completed periodically through batching periods with specific cutoff dates, Georgia State Conservationist Terrance O. Rudolph wants you to know that applications are accepted on a continuous basis and any received after that batching date will be held and evaluated for subsequent funding opportunities.
NRCS offers voluntary programs to eligible landowners and agricultural producers to provide financial and technical assistance to help manage natural resources in a sustainable manner. Through these programs the agency approves contracts to provide financial assistance to help plan and implement conservation practices that address natural resource concerns or opportunities to help save energy, improve soil, water, plant, air, animal and related resources on agricultural lands and non-industrial private forest land.
