Tribal Conservation Advisory Council

Wisconsin Tribal Conservation Advisory Council

The Wisconsin Tribal Conservation Advisory Council (WTCAC) was organized in March 2001 to identify tribal conservation issues and to advise the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service on more effective ways to deliver USDA programs and assist the Indian Nations of Wisconsin. This Conservation Advisory Council, authorized in the 1995 Farm Bill, was the first such council formed in the country. 

One of the responsibilities of WTCAC, at the request of the NRCS State Conservationist, is to review and recommend funding for conservation proposals from the 11 federally recognized tribes in Wisconsin. WTCAC is allocated funds annually for the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) .
