Conservation Innovation Grants in Arkansas

Applications are due by August 5, 2024.
USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) announced the availability of Conservation Innovation Grants (CIG) State Program funding to stimulate the development and adoption of innovative conservation approaches and technologies in Arkansas. All non-federal and non-foreign entities are eligible to apply. Projects may be between one and three years in duration. The maximum award amount for a single award is $100,000. CIG projects are expected to lead to the transfer of conservation technologies, management systems, and innovative approaches (such as market-based systems) to agricultural producers, into government technical manuals and guides, or to the private sector.
