State Technical Committee

Established by the 1985 Food Security Act, the Nevada STAC provides recommendations to NRCS to carry out the conservation provisions of the Farm Bill.  Although the STAC has no implementation or enforcement authority, the committee's recommendations are given strong consideration by USDA.

The STAC provides advice and input to NRCS on many issues, including:

• State program management policies and procedures
• Technical programmatic recommendations
• Statewide public information and outreach campaigns
• Identifying significant statewide natural resource concerns
• Guidelines for developing ranking criteria for evaluating applications
• Guidance on eligible conservation practices
• Technical guidance on conservation practices, including new and innovative practices
• Cost share rates and incentive payment limits and methods of payment
• Identifying, monitoring, and analyzing performance indicators
• Evaluating and reporting program impacts on natural resources and the environment
• Coordinating with other Federal, State, Tribal, and local public and private activities
