USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) in California is now accepting proposals for its Conservation Innovation Grants (CIG) program. Up to $375,000 is available for one- to three-year grants. The maximum award amount for any project will not exceed $75,000 in FY 2017. The proposed projects should augment existing NRCS technical tools (planning, assessment, and/or delivery) to better facilitate conservation on farms and ranches. In 2017, NRCS California is prioritizing proposals that improve the "technical toolbox" to address the following on-farm resource concerns: soil and water quality, wildlife habitat, water conservation, forest health, air quality, waste recycling, and energy conservation. Eligible applicants include state and local government, nongovernment organizations, Tribal governments, eligible private business and individuals.
Proposals are due by June 7, 2017.
