Get Incentivized to Farm Better through the

NRCS EQIP (Environmental Quality Incentives Program):


Through the EQIP Program, producers can receive cost-sharing for fencing, waterlines, new seeding, as well as technical assistance.

Once enrolled in the EQIP program through NRCS, farmers are also able to enroll in CSP (Conservation Stewardship Program), which offers additional cost-sharing incentives for enhancements to the grazing plan and farm operation.
