  • StrikeForce: USDA launched the StrikeForce for Rural Growth and Opportunity in 2010 to ensure underserved communities in rural America gain equal access to all USDA programs and services. Since that time, it has grown to encompass over 400 counties and Indian reservations in 20 states. NRCS in Virginia joined this effort in 2013, partnering with other USDA agencies and local nonprofit organizations to host outreach meetings to increase awareness of and enrollment in NRCS programs among producers who have not traditionally worked with NRCS. To apply for StrickForce, the eligible land must be within designated StrikeForce Localities.

  • On-Farm Energy Initiative: Enables the producer to identify ways to conserve energy on the farm via the an agricultural energy management plan (AgEMP).  An AgEMP is a detailed documentation and inventory of the energy consuming activities and components of the current agricultural operation. The plan will document a typical prior year of on-farm energy consumption, and the strategy by which the producer will explore and prioritize their on-farm energy conservation concerns, objectives, and opportunities.

  • Livestock Grazing Systems Pilot:

    The primary goal of applications within this fund pool is to improve soil quality, plant productivity and health, and the quality of forage for livestock via the installation/implementation of conservation practices that address these resource concerns. Supporting or associated conservation practices that will be installed/implemented in association with applications within this fund pool will address the following resource concern: soil erosion, insufficient water for livestock, and livestock production limitations. Open to grazing operations within Augusta or Highland counties.

    Application Deadline: 5:00 pm 6/21/2019.  Applications received by this deadline will be reviewed using the FY19 EQIP General Screening Worksheet. A Yes determination to any one of the questions will result in the application receiving a Low Priority for consideration in FY19.  These applications will not be ranked or considered for funding until all eligible applications with a higher priority, that address an eligible resource concern, have been ranked and considered for funding.
