Environmental Quality Incentives Program

Energy Initiative

Conservation practices contribute to energy efficiency and fuel savings.  Farmers and ranchers can cut input costs, maintain production, protect soil and water resources, reduce the nation's dependence on fossil fuels and save money by using conservation practices. Check with your local NRCS office to find out about your area's options.

Eligible applicants include individuals, legal entities, Indian Tribes or joint operations engaged in agricultural production. Producers who grow agricultural commodities on eligible land and have resource concerns that may be addressed by energy conservation may participate in EQIP’s On-Farm Energy Initiative.

USDA will continue to support conservation practices that save producers money and improve the environment.

How To Apply

NRCS staff will work with the program applicant to develop a conservation plan and an EQIP plan of operations. This plan becomes the basis of the EQIP contract between NRCS and the producer.
