Partner Opportunities

StrikeForce Landing

NRCS works with state, local, and community groups to increase awareness of the conservation assistance we offer and build participation among farmers and ranchers. Outreach and partnerships helped grow the number of NRCS program applications from underserved producers last year by 82 percent in StrikeForce areas.

Local Community Based Organizations are critical to this effort. Since 2010, USDA has partnered with over four hundred of these organizations - congregations, volunteer organizations, nonprofits and others.               


If you are located in a StrikeForce area and would like to partner with NRCS, start by contacting your StrikeForce State Coordinators.

StrikeForce States

StrikeForce includes targeted counties in Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, New Mexico, Nevada, North Carolina, North Dakota, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia and West Virginia.
