Potential partners are invited to propose Regional Conservation Partnership Program (RCPP) projects where NRCS and partners co-invest in impactful and innovative solutions to on-farm, watershed, and regional natural resource concerns. Proposed projects must generate conservation benefits by addressing specific natural resource objectives in a state/multistate area or address one or more primary resource concerns within an NRCS-designated critical conservation area (CCA). Through RCPP, NRCS may provide both financial and technical assistance funds to project partners and agricultural producers to carry out projects. Up to $300 million is available for RCPP projects for FY 2019. Applications are accepted from all 50 states, the Caribbean Area (Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands), and U.S. territories in the Pacific Island Areas (Guam, American Samoa, and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands).
Applications must be received by December 3, 2019.
