The Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) is a service provided by the USDA Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS), which provides financial and technical assistance to agricultural producers and landowners.
This program focuses on the planning and implementation of various conservation practices which focus on meeting environmental regulations on Federal, State, Tribal, and Local levels. The areas of focus for EQIP include soil, water, plant, animal, air and other natural resources on eligible lands. Lands that are counted eligible for EQIP include cropland, rangeland, pastureland, non-industrial private forestland, and other farm or ranch lands. The program is entirely voluntary to landowners who are interested, and is a statewide opportunity.
For more information and specifics on EQIP, please contact your local NRCS office!
