USDA's Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) is now accepting applications for up to $225,000 in funding to promote the development and adoption of innovative approaches for agricultural production in Pennsylvania.

Grants will be awarded for projects between one and three years’ duration with individual awards not exceeding $75,000. State and local units of government, non-governmental organizations, and individuals interested in applying for these competitive grants must submit proposals by 4 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (EST) April 27, 2018.

This year, NRCS is seeking proposals focused on non-industrial private forestland, urban and micro scale agriculture, soil health, and pollinators. CIG does not fund research projects but makes an exception for on-farm conservation research as defined in the funding announcement. Projects must involve landowners who meet eligibility requirements for the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP).
