USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) in California is now accepting proposals for $375,000 in funding through its Conservation Innovation Grants (CIG) program. The maximum award amount for any project will not exceed $75,000 in FY 2018. Projects should augment existing NRCS technical tools (planning, assessment, and/or delivery) to better facilitate conservation on farms and ranches. In 2018, 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 April 17, 2018.
