Applications sought for programs

-A A +A

The USDA-Natural Resources Conservation Service in Kentucky is encouraging landowners, farmers and producers to visit their local NRCS office now to receive more information and apply for conservation technical assistance and possible financial funding opportunities. 

The application process for 2008 Farm Bill conservation programs is continuous, but funding selections are made at specific times throughout the year.  The Kentucky NRCS application ranking cutoff date for consideration for 2012 funds in this sign up period is Nov. 15.

Financial assistance is available to eligible applicants for Environmental Quality Incentives Program, Mississippi River Basin Watershed Initiative and Wildlife Habitat Incentive Program.

All recipients of assistance are required to develop a Conservation Plan.  Conservation planning is an integral part of the conservation process.

For more information, contact Paul Veech NRCS district conservationist at (502) 732-6098.
