USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) reminds landowners it accepts applications for the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) on a continuous basis. While signups with certain batching dates are held from time to time, EQIP is one of the programs producers can sign-up for at any time of the year.

NRCS Chief Terry Cosby notes EQIP and some of their other program applications are accepted on a continuous basis.


By providing financial and technical assistance to agricultural producers, EQIP addresses natural resource concerns and delivers environmental benefits. Those benefits include improved water and air quality, conserved ground and surface water, reduced soil erosion and sedimentation or improved or created wildlife habitat.
