EQIP Organic Initiative

The 2014 Farm Bill highlights the availability of financial and technical assistance to help producers of all commodities meet their conservation goals, including those transitioning to organic farming and currently certified organic producers. Our assistance through the Environmental Quality Incentive Program (EQIP) helps producers plan and implement conservation practices to achieve increased conservation benefits on their operations. Apply for the Organic Initiative through EQIP for financial assistance. The application process for conservation programs is continuous, but funding selections are typically made once a year.
