Columbia, MO, April 1, 2021—The USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) in Missouri is seeking opportunities to partner with, and support the efforts of, likeminded natural resource conservation partners. The overall intent of this solicitation is to solicit partnerships to help provide outreach, education, and technical assistance on USDA-NRCS programs including, but not limited to, conducting conservation outreach workshops, conferences, and training that will help educate Missouri’s farm community, private landowners, conservation organizations, cooperating agencies, and general citizenry.
Proposals will be accepted for projects performed in Missouri and focus on Farm Bill conservation. Collaborative projects that provide on-the-ground support for Missouri NRCS Field Offices are highly encouraged. Research proposals will not be accepted, nor considered.
NRCS anticipates that the amount available for support of these programs in FY 2021 will be approximately $750,000. Agreements awarded in pursuant to this NFO may be 1 to 3 years in duration.
