Soil Carbon Monitoring Training and Outreach Agreements

Applications are due by November 28, 2022.
USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) is making four regional funding agreements available to provide training and outreach for assessing and monitoring the effects of Climate-smart practices on soil carbon sequestration and the use of a NRCS conservation evaluation and monitoring activity that provides financial assistance to producers for deep core soil organic carbon measurement. For FY 2022, NRCS has made $8 million total available for four agreements, one each targeting the Northeast, Southeast, Central, and West regions of the United States. The maximum amount for a single region award in FY 2022 is $2 million and the minimum funding for each award is $1.5 million. The agreement may be two to four years in duration. Applications will be accepted from eligible entities and must include a strategy to reach equity in historically underserved communities.
