USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service in Mississippi is offering $2 million in Cooperative Agreements to increase the participation of Historically Underserved Farmers and Ranchers, including Beginning Farmers, Limited Resource producers, Socially Disadvantaged Landowners, and Veterans, in USDA programs while increasing their access to and awareness of present and future conservation programs and practices. The primary focus will be but not limited to the 66 StrikeForce Counties in Mississippi to expand the number and depth of engagement of the landowners they serve in NRCS Programs, and to report on outcomes achieved. It includes case studies, scientific research, and pilot agricultural community projects that include rural and semi-rural. The NRCS is requesting applications from qualified individuals and organizations that share a common interest in the conservation and restoration of natural resources throughout Mississippi.
Applications are due May 5, 2017.
