2012 Environmental Quality Incentive Program

EQIP Implementation by Multi-County Team/Local Work Group (LWG)

For Fiscal Year 2012, general EQIP cost-sharing will be offered on a multi-county team/local work group basis.  Each local work group has its own ranking criteria and factors it uses in determining which projects will be funded and how much financial assistance is available for approved conservation practices.

Click on your county to find the local EQIP application ranking criteria, eligible practices available for financial assistance and practice schedules.

The EQIP payment schedules include the conservation practices that are available for financial assistance in Washington State. Payments will be made at the established payment rate per unit for each component within the practice. A contract may or may not include all components identified for a practice. Payment rates for eligible applicants who qualify as a Beginning Farmer/Rancher or Limited Resource Producer will be increased by 15%.

Some practices in the payment schedule may not be available in every Local Work Group (LWG) or Tribal application. Refer to the specific LWG or Tribal eligible practices list for the practices selected for that location or purpose.
