Conservation program news
The Environmental Quality Incentives Program is a voluntary program that provides financial and technical assistance to agricultural producers to help plan and implement conservation practices that address natural resource concerns and for opportunities to improve soil, water, plant, animal, air, and related resources on agricultural land and non-industrial private forestland.
Owners of land in agricultural or forest production or persons who are engaged in livestock, agricultural, or forest production on eligible land and that have a natural resource concern on the land may participate in the Environmental Quality Incentives Program.
Applications for the program are accepted on a continuous basis; however, the Natural Resources Conservation Service establishes application “cut-off” or submission deadline dates for evaluation and ranking of eligible applications. To obtain an Environmental Quality Incentives Program application, visit or contact your local U.S. Department of Agriculture Natural Resources Conservation Service field office located at 1106 10th St. (U.S. 181) in Floresville or call 830-393-3555, ext. 3.
