The USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) wants to remind livestock producers they have until September 22nd to apply for funding through the Grazing Lands Conservation Initiative (GLCI). $12 million has been made nationwide to invest in partnerships that expand access to conservation technical assistance for livestock producers and increase the use of conservation practices on grazing lands.

Through GLCI, NRCS will leverage the partnerships to increase availability of technical assistance for farmers and ranchers engaged in grazing activities and act as navigators for grazers seeking additional resources.


Natural Resources Conservation Service Associate Chief Louis Aspey discusses the history of a conservation program that is making a return to a national scale with a recent announcement of applications for project funding.

Project proposals for GLCI Cooperative Agreements will identify and address barriers to accessing grazing assistance for producers. These partnerships are encouraged to include outreach and support for reaching historically underserved producers.
