NRCS is making $470,000 available through the RCPP Forestry Program to help increase adoption of forestry practices statewide. Get funding for creating a Forestry Management Plan and installing recommended practices. Sign up by December 18.
If you want clean air, look to the soil. Soils help moderate temperatures and store carbon, a major component of greenhouse gases. Replanting forests, protecting and restoring wetlands, and good agricultural practices all help soil store more carbon and keep it out of the atmosphere.
Farmers can now apply for $1.45 million in funding through a new multi-agency Regional Conservation Partnership Program (RCPP) project offered in cooperation with the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation. View the project map.
Conservation Client Gateway, a new public website, allows you to request technical and financial assistance, review and sign conservation plans, request and track payments for your completed contract items, and much more.
