Farmers and landowners in five Arkansas counties have until October 31, 2017, to submit applications to receive financial assistance through the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) to implement conservation practices in two Regional Conservation Partnership Program (RCPP) projects. Applicants can sign up at their local USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service field service center.
“The RCPP projects in Arkansas are being implemented with our conservation partners to accelerate conservation treatment to improve water quality, maintain productivity and enhance wildlife habitat,” said NRCS State Conservationist Michael Sullivan.
The projects open for sign-up are:
East Cadron Creek – a portion of Faulkner County.
Greers Ferry Lake Watershed – portions of Cleburne, Searcy, Stone and Van Buren counties.
Some of the conservation practices available include irrigation water management, prescribed grazing, nutrient management and tree and shrub establishment.
Additional information about the RCPP projects, area maps, fact sheets and conservation practices, are available at www.ar.nrcs.usda.gov. To locate your local field office, visit www.nrcs.usda.gov/wps/portal/nrcs/main/ar/contact/local/.
