USDA's Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) plans to invest $10 million in the Conservation Innovation Grants (CIG) program, funding innovative conservation projects in three focus areas: grazing lands, organic systems and soil health. All U.S.-based entities and individuals are invited to apply, with the sole exception of Federal agencies. Up to 20% of CIG funds will be set aside for proposals from historically underserved producers, veteran farmers or ranchers, or groups serving these customers. Projects can last up to three years. The maximum award amount for any project this year is $2 million.
Proposals are due February 26, 2018.
