Environmental Quality Incentives Program

Click for Brochure  The Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) is a voluntary
  conservation program supporting agriculture, forestry, and
  environmental quality as compatible goals. Through EQIP, farmers and
  foresters may receive financial and technical help with conservation
  practices on agricultural land. EQIP in New Hampshire offers financial
  assistance for estimated costs incurred for conservation practices.
  Payments may also be made to encourage a farmer to adopt land
  management practices, such as nutrient management, manure
  management, integrated pest management, or wildlife habitat
  management.  Farm and forestry activities in New Hampshire are good
  for our state, our health, and our economy. When properly planned and
  managed, they are also good for our natural resources.

for EQIP assistance unless a waiver has been approved (see 440-CPM, Part 512, Subpart E).
