USDA Accepting Conservation Innovation Grants Through July 30

As part of the 2018 Farm Bill, USDA announced it will invest $12.5 million to assist with the adoption of innovative conservation practices on farmland. USDA-National Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) will be accepting applications through July 30 and will be awarding grants on both the state and federal levels. Proposals including the research, development, and implementation of conservation practices will need to be matched by grantees and will serve in showing how American farmers are committed to conservation practices.
