Webinar: Introduction to USDA’s NRCS Program

Webinar: Introduction to Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS)

On February 16, 2023, RAFI-USA and the Organic Growers School presented a webinar on NRCS’s EQIP program.

Farmers often know this USDA program by EQIP.  The Environmental Quality Incentives program (EQIP) is one of several Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS) initiatives that help farmers address on-farm natural resource concerns related to soil, water, air, plants, animals, and energy. NRCS offers conservation planning assistance and cost-share project assistance but can sometimes feel difficult to navigate. Join RAFI-USA and the Organic Growers School to learn more about the NRCS program, EQIP cost-share assistance, lesser-known initiatives, and being a successful applicant.

This material is supported by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, under agreement number NR223A750003C066.
