NRCS Accepting Proposals for Conservation Innovation Grants
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 04/07/2021

The USDA's Natural Resources Conservation Service in Wisconsin is offering up to $500,000 in funding for eligible individuals, local and state government, non-governmental organizations and tribes through the Conservation Innovation Grants program. In conjunction with agricultural production, CIG is intended to support the development and adoption of innovative conservation approaches and technologies.

Coordinators say proposals must involve Environmental Quality Incentive Program eligible producers and should demonstrate the use of innovative technologies or approaches to address a natural resource concern. These resource concerns must fit into one of the following categories: Conservation Planning, Manure Management Systems or Soil Health Management Systems.

Projects may be between one and three years in duration. The maximum award amount for a single award in 2021 is $500,000 and the minimum award amount is $50,000. Applicants must match the USDA funds awarded on a dollar-for-dollar basis from non-Federal sources with cash and in-kind contributions.

Proposals are due by May 7 and projects must be within Wisconsin.
