Agricultural Water Enhancement Program

Agricultural Water Enhancement Program (AWEP)

The Agricultural Water Enhancement Program (AWEP) is a voluntary conservation program under the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP). AWEP provides financial and technical assistance to farmers and ranchers to assist them in applying agricultural water enhancement activities that conserve ground and surface water and improve water quality on agricultural lands.  

While EQIP is available statewide, AWEP is only available in USDA approved project areas.  AWEP applications are currently being accepted for land located in project areas (click on map below).
