Minnesota agricultural producers who are interested in the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) need to apply to USDA NRCS by August 18, 2017, for funding in 2018. Applications for EQIP are accepted on a continuous basis; however, NRCS establishes application acceptance or submission deadline dates for evaluation and ranking of eligible applications. Contracts will be awarded to producers with the highest rankings until funds are exhausted. EQIP is a voluntary program that provides financial and technical assistance to agricultural producers. These contracts provide financial assistance to help plan and implement conservation practices that address natural resource concerns and for opportunities to improve soil, water, plant, animal, air, and related resources on agricultural land and non-industrial private forestland.
Applications for 2018 funds are due by August 18, 2017.
