2008 Local Working Group and State Technical Advisory Committee Process

Idaho 2008 State EQIP

Local Working Group and State Technical Advisory Committee Process

NRCS seeks input from both the Local Working Groups (LWGs) and the State Technical Advisory Committee (STAC) on how the EQIP program is administered in Idaho.

LWGs are established in each county.  The minimum membership includes the local NRCS District Conservationist, the FSA County Committee and the county Soil and Water Conservation District.  Other local stakeholders are invited to attend and provide input.  They assist in identifying resource concerns, recommend practices, priorities, payment rates and funding needs.

Following submittal of information by LWGs, the State Conservationist convenes the STAC and seeks further comment.  The STAC consists of interested stakeholders from local and state agencies, industry and environmental interest groups.  Using comments and suggestions provided by the STAC, the State Conservationist develops the specific program requirements within the guidance set forth in the EQIP program rules and regulations.
