EQIP Signup Deadline for Available Funding

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) announced the 2021 Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) application deadline of October 16, 2020, for South Carolina farmers and private landowners to be considered for available funding. NRCS accepts EQIP applications year-round but makes funding selections at specific times throughout the year. NRCS is encouraging producers and private landowners to submit their applications as soon as possible because funding is limited.

To learn more about financial and technical assistance available to help South Carolina farmers and other landowners improve and protect their land, visit NRCS in South Carolina’s website at, or visit your local NRCS office. USDA service center locations are listed at
