The Iowa Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) is announcing the potential availability of funding for agreements for the purpose of leveraging NRCS resources, addressing local natural resource issues, encouraging collaboration and developing state-and-community-level conservation leadership. Successful applicant proposals must be Iowa-based projects and focus on the Iowa-specific conservation issues as noted below.
Successful applicants will send an administrative and technical contact to attend the Iowa NRCS training for Administration of Federal Agreements. This training is usually held within six months of the award. Reasonable travel and per diem costs associated with the training may be built into the proposal. Iowa NRCS does not guarantee this training will be available through on-line or teleconference capabilities.

Sample Forms (and instructions) are available at https://www.grants.gov/web/grants/forms/sf-424-family.html.
