EQIP cutoff is Jan. 18, 2019

Applications are accepted year-round, but there are ranking periods throughout the year.

Thinking about signing up for EQIP? If so, a deadline is approaching in January.

Applications for the Environmental Quality Incentives Program are accepted year-round, but Jan. 18, 2019, is the application cutoff by which a producer or landowner must submit a signed application to their Natural Resources Conservation Service office for Fiscal Year 2019 funding consideration. 

Eligible applications will be ranked, and contracts will be awarded thereafter. Applications with higher quality and quantity of proposed conservation and environmental benefits receive higher scores. The highest-ranking applications are funded first. A second application cutoff is April 19, 2019. 

EQIP provides financial and technical assistance to help landowners voluntarily implement conservation practices to improve natural resources. Payment is provided for a variety of practices to address resource concerns related to water quality, grazing land health, soil erosion and health, wildlife habitat and others. 

To learn about technical and financial assistance available through conservation programs, contact your NRCS Office
