How The Environmental Quality Incentives Program Helps Farmers

About NRCS and Financial Assistance

NRCS can provide financial assistance to help implement conservation practices that address natural resource concerns or opportunities to help save energy, improve soil, water, plant, air, animal and related resources on agricultural lands and non-industrial private forest land. The availability and amount of financial assistance can vary between practice payment scenarios.  Each year, NRCS re-evaluates the amount of financial assistance payment rates.

 

Through the High Tunnel System ranking pool NRCS can assist producers to extend the growing season for high value crops in an environmentally safe manner.

 

The initiative has the potential to assist producers in addressing a resource concern by extending the growing season, improving soil quality, and reducing nutrient and pesticide transport.

Environmental Quality Incentives Program - EQIP

The Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) provides financial and technical assistance to agricultural producers and non-industrial forest managers to address natural resource concerns and deliver environmental benefits such as improved water and air quality, conserved ground and surface water, increased soil health and reduced soil erosion and sedimentation, improved or created wildlife habitat, and mitigation against drought and increasing weather volatility.

 

To learn more about EQIP, contact your local NRCS office. An NRCS conservationist will visit you and evaluate the natural resources on your land. NRCS will then present a variety of conservation practices or system alternatives to help you address those concerns or management goals that improve or protect the natural resource conditions on your land.
