TEMPLE -- Applications for funding opportunities with the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) Environmental Quality Incentive Program are currently being accepted at all NRCS offices across Texas.

NRCS in Texas has received its initial allocation of Environmental Quality Incentive Program funding for 2013 and will begin ranking and obligating the program’s contracts after Feb. 15. All agriculture producers interested in submitting an Environmental Quality Incentive Program contract application for 2013 should do so before this ranking deadline.

The Environmental Quality Incentive Program is a voluntary, continuous sign-up program that allows landowners or operators to apply for financial and technical assistance for the application of specific conservation practices; but the deadline for the first 2013 funding is Feb. 15. Contracts are offered periodically depending on budgetary allocations. Applications made after the deadline will be considered in the next funding cycle. Higher priority will be given to those applications that address national, state, and local priorities and provide higher cost efficiency.

The Natural Resources Conservation Service encourages any person interested in participating in their programs to contact their local field office.

For more information, including eligibility requirements, call the U.S. Department of Agriculture Service Center office serving the county where your land is located. In Wilson County, contact Jason Katacsmorak, district conservationist of the Floresville Field Office, located off U.S. 181 in Floresville, or call 830-393-4253.
