“Through our Conservation Innovation Grants, we are able to bring together a wide array of groups to drive innovation and spur cutting-edge projects. This year’s competition resulted in an impressive array of proposals that will ultimately benefit the people who grow our food and fiber.” - Bill Northey, USDA Undersecretary for Farm Production and Conservation

On July 26, 2018, NRCS announced that the agency awarded $10.6 million to 22 projects through its 2018 national CIG competition. This year CIG focused on soil health, grazing lands, and organic agriculture.
