NRCS Sets Program Funding Application Cutoffs for December 21, 2018 for Reducing Sedimentation in Doniphan County, Kansas

SALINA, Kansas–November 21, 2018 - The USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), Doniphan County Conservation District (DCCD), and other partners have joined in a Regional Conservation Partnership Program (RCPP) to offer financial assistance to help landowners improve water quality by reducing sedimentation from field drainage areas that are impacting county roadways in Doniphan County, Kansas.

NRCS is providing funding through the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP). There will be two fiscal year 2019 EQIP application evaluation periods for this RCPP project. The first application evaluation period will be for applications received by December 21, 2018.  The second application evaluation period will be for applications received by March 15, 2019.

Targeted areas where EQIP funds will be available for agricultural producers interested in implementing conservation practices will include Doniphan County, Kansas.  Funding will go toward water quality—excess sediment in surface water improvement practices such as terraces, grassed waterways, water and sediment control basins, filter strips, grade stabilization structures, as well as others.
