NRCS slates Nov. 2 deadline for EQIP


October 11, 2018

USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service announced the application deadline for early obligation fund pools within the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) in Washington will be Nov. 2.

The early obligation EQIP funding pools include national initiatives such as Organic, High Tunnel, Conservation Activity Plans, Wildfire Recovery and Sage Grouse Initiatives. For more information about these Initiatives, please refer to the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service website: http://www.nrcs.usda.gov.

Certain RCPP fund pools are also eligible for the early obligation.

Although applications are accepted on a year-round basis and other EQIP signup periods will be announced in 2019, eligible producers and entities interested in the early obligation for fiscal year 2019 need to submit their application and meet eligibility requirements for consideration by the Nov. 2 cut-off date.

Each applicant must complete all Farm Service Agency eligibility requirements prior to the application cut-off date.
