Mississippi River Basin Healthy Watersheds Initiative Maps and List of Watershed

MRBI Focus Area Watersheds Map - Small

Forty-one watersheds in the 12 Mississippi River Basin Initiative (MRBI) states known as Focus Areas were selected by NRCS State Conservationists based on potential for avoiding, controlling, and trapping nutrients and improving water quality in selected watersheds within the Mississippi River Basin. The Focus Areas were selected based on input from conservation partners, including participants in State Technical Committees and state agencies with water quality responsibilities using the best available data at the state level.

MRBI projects will be selected from smaller watersheds within Focus Areas through a competitive process under the Cooperative Conservation Partnership Initiative (CCPI) leveraging partner contributions and accelerating conservation assistance to achieve MRBI objectives. Additional programs and funding will be available to support CCPI funded projects, including the Wetlands Reserve Enhancement Program and Conservation Innovation Grants.
