National Resources Conservation Service Funding Applications Available

The National Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) Caribbean Area sign-up for fiscal year 2017 EQIP funding is now open. The Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) is a voluntary conservation program that provides financial and technical assistance to farmers and ranchers to help them install and implement conservation practices on eligible agricultural land.

Through EQIP, NRCS helps farmers in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands to improve their agricultural production and environmental quality.

EQIP applications are accepted year-round; however, NRCS sets application "cut-off" or submission deadlines to evaluate, rank and approve eligible applications. These following are this year’s cut-off dates:

EQIP Period 1 cut-off date: November 18, 2016
