California Conservation Activity Plan EQIP Fund Pool

About the Fund Pool

The Food Security Act of 1985 as amended and subsequent congressional actions authorize NRCS to provide financial assistance through EQIP to support development of CAPs. For each of the offered CAPs, EQIP payments will only be made for development of plans prepared by certified technical service providers (TSP).

For each of the offered CAPs, EQIP payments will only be made for development of plans prepared by certified technical service providers (TSP).

Applications for a CAP must address all the identified and applicable resource concerns and include all the eligible fields that—

  1. The CAP is designed to address (i.e., all farmstead, crop or pasture operations).
  2. Are within the operating unit.
  3. The producer has control.
  4. Are included in the NRCS-Certified conservation plan.

CAPs that do not cover the entire area described above will be determined ineligible, as they are not effective in assisting the producer to meet the purpose of the program.
