Florida EQIP Application Deadline is November 17

EQIP can provide cost-share funds for conservation practices such cross fencing, and a water trough system to allow for rotational grazing and protection of riparian areas.

Florida farmers, ranchers and forest owners can apply until November 17, 2017 for fiscal year 2018 funding from the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) that provides financial and technical assistance through USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS). Although applications are accepted on a continuous basis for all programs, funding selections are typically made once a year.  The following video explains the types of services and cost-share programs the NRCS provides to farmers and ranchers, and the basic information needed to apply for EQIP funding.

Through EQIP, agricultural landowners may receive financial and technical assistance to improve soil, water, air, plants, animals, and related resources. Eligible land includes cropland, rangeland, pastureland, private non-industrial forestland and other farm or ranch lands. The application deadline also applies to the following EQIP-funded initiatives:

Begin by visiting your local NRCS field office and requesting help developing a conservation plan. To learn about technical and financial assistance available from NRCS, go to Getting Started with NRCS.
