Conservation Incentive Contract deadlihne set

SPOKANE VALLEY – The deadline to apply for a USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service Environmental Quality Incentives Program-Conservation Incentive Contracts is Jan. 24.

The USDA set the application deadline today, Dec. 20.

The Environmental Quality Incentives Program-Conservation Incentives Contracts is a voluntary conservation program offering farmers, ranchers and nonindustrial private forest landowners financial and technical assistance to help plan and implement conservation practices and activities on working agricultural and forestry landscapes.

The contracts offer conservation activities that producers can implement to address resource concerns. Unlike the Conservation Stewardship Program, this program doesn't require a producer to enroll their entire operation to participate.
