USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service is now accepting applications for pre-proposals for Conservation Innovation Grants. Applications are due March 7.

With these grants, NRCS and public and private partners accelerate development of technologies and adoption of promising approaches that address natural resource concerns on private agricultural and forest lands.

Applications that relate to nutrient management, energy conservation, soil health, air quality, climate change, wildlife, economics, sociology, environmental markets, food safety, historically underserved groups or assessments of past CIG projects will be given priority.

State and local governments, federally recognized Indian tribes, non-governmental and educational organizations, private businesses and individuals are eligible to apply.

About $15 million will be made available for these competitive grants, nationwide. At least 50 percent of the total cost of grant projects must come from non-federal matching funds, including cash and in-kind contributions provided by the grant recipient.

For more on this opportunity, visit the CIG webpage. To apply electronically, visit Grants.gov.
