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

The conservation service in Texas has received its initial allocation of Environmental Quality Incentives Program and the Wildlife Habitat Incentive Program funding for 2014 and will begin ranking and obligating contracts after Friday, Jan. 17. All agriculture producers interested in submitting a contract application for 2014 should do so before this ranking deadline.

Environmental Quality Incentives Program and the Wildlife Habitat Incentive Program are continuous sign-up programs that allow landowners or operators to apply for financial and technical assistance for the application of specific conservation practices, but the deadline for the first 2014 funding allocation is Jan. 17. 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.

Environmental Quality Incentives Program offers technical and financial help to install or implement structural, vegetative, and management practices that can benefit the soil, water, air, plants, livestock, and wildlife.

Wildlife Habitat Incentive Program applications must address traditional natural resource issues such as water quantity, water quality, grazing lands, forest health, soil management, emerging natural resource issues, and climate change.

Each county in the state is funded yearly to assist producers financially with these land management practices.

For more information, including eligibility requirements, call the U.S. Department of Agriculture Service Center office serving the county where your land is located. Service center locations and program information can be found on the Texas Natural Resources Conservation Service website at www.tx.nrcs.usda.gov.
