How the Environmental Quality Incentives Program is Implemented in Delaware

The Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) is a voluntary conservation program administered by the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service. EQIP supports production agriculture and environmental quality as compatible goals. Through EQIP, Delaware farmers may receive financial and technical help to plan, design and install structural conservation practices and to plan and implement management practices on eligible agricultural land.

Applications for EQIP cost share are accepted continuously. Producers may sign up for available practices including agricultural waste management, integrated crop management, irrigation water management, erosion control, grazing land management, biodiversity, and poultry house windbreaks.

EQIP is a competitive program using a combination of statewide and county criteria to fund the most environmentally beneficial projects. Delaware historically has received applications totaling more than available funds.  Periodically, all current applications are batched and ranked.
 

All sign-ups are conducted at USDA Service Centers in Delaware.
