The USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) Climate Office is seeking input on its Climate-Smart Agriculture and Forestry Mitigation Activities List. Each year, the Climate Office reviews NRCS conservation activities (practices and enhancements) to recommend additions, removals, or to provide further detail for listed activities. The list guides eligibility for funds from the Inflation Reduction Act.

While NRCS collects feedback throughout the year, the Climate Office will batch submissions for fiscal year 2025 that are received by Friday, June 7, 2024. NRCS welcomes submissions that include relevant scientific literature supporting the climate change mitigation benefits of specific activities.


There are several options for you to provide input:

  • At the local level to the Local Working Group, a subcommittee of the State Technical Committee,
  • At the state level to the State Technical Committee, or
  • At the national level by emailing the NRCS Climate Office at

This is all in an effort to helping NRCS improve climate-smart opportunities for agricultural and forestry producers. For additional information click here.
