The USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) in Georgia is requesting proposals to assist with implementing key priorities in the state.

Rudolph, state conservationist for NRCS in Georgia. “It’s through investments like these, that we can provide critical resources to partners, and they can help us be better at providing services to all of our customers and communities.
