Conservation Assessment Ranking Tool (CART): PART III ~ Deep Dive

Farmer and Ranchers will have access to billions of dollars in federal assistance through the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) to maintain and undertake critical conservation efforts on their farms and ranches that benefit us all. How is access to these resources determined? This is the second webinar of a three-part series that explores a new tool called the Conservation Assessment Ranking Tool (CART). The CART provides an efficient ranking tool to rank applications for funding consideration. This webinar series takes place during September and October of 2020 to provide interested farmers, ranchers and others with an overview of the tool, as well as a deeper look into how it works.

This webinar builds on the previous two by taking a deeper look at the science behind CART and the methodology the ranking tool uses to rank different applications across multiple ranking pools for funding consideration.
