In a January press release, the USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) announces $252 million dollars available to locally driven, public-private partnerships that improve the nation’s water quality, combat drought, enhance soil health, support wildlife habitat, and protect agricultural viability.
The NRCS invites potential conservation partners, including private industry, non-government organizations, Indian tribes, state and local governments, water districts, and universities to submit project applications for federal funding through RCPP.
RCPP was created by the 2014 Farm Bill and aims to connect partners with producers and private landowners to design and implement voluntary conservation solutions that benefit natural resources, agriculture, and the economy.
