CIG awards are intended to stimulate the development and adoption of innovative conservation approaches and technologies (in conjunction with agricultural production) while leveraging federal investment in environmental enhancement and protection. Applicants submitting proposals may request up to $75,000 of matching federal funds. CIG projects must involve Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) eligible producers. The CIG priority for FY20 in Georgia is focusing on Soil Health Management Systems.
