Apply now, deadline is June 16

Last Wednesday NRCS announced that $2 Million had been allocated for flood recovery efforts in California. Funding can be used to repair existing EQIP projects or install new ones. Funding is limited and the deadline for application is June 16th, so interested producers should apply today by contacting their local NRCS service center. Other USDA funding from FSA’s Emergency Conservation Program (ECP) is available to help restore flood-damaged lands and fences. While the ECP’s deadline was extended until October 13th, it is likely that applications will exceed funding and producers should act now.
