The USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) is seeking proposals for $3 million in grants for projects that stimulate the development and adoption of innovative conservation approaches that will reduce nutrient loads to the Chesapeake Bay watershed. As part of its Conservation Innovation Grants (CIG) program, NRCS is accepting proposals from governmental and non-governmental organizations, as well as individuals, for competitive consideration of grant awards up to $500,000 per project, for projects between one and three years in duration. NRCS will consider proposals for projects that will increase participation in conservation programs and assistance to historically underserved producers or veteran farmers or ranchers, provide nutrient management and sediment control, reduce nutrient losses and legacy sediments from farm fields, and/or leverage public and private impact investment in working lands conservation.
Proposals must be submitted by June 5, 2017.
