NRCS Extends Deadline For Conservation Innovation Grants To June 29

On April 29, the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service-PA announced the deadline to apply for $15 million in Conservation Innovation Grants has been extended to June 29.  The deadline had been June 15.
This year’s priorities are water reuse, water quality, air quality, energy and wildlife habitat.
“Through Conservation Innovation Grants, we’re able to co-invest with partners on the next generation of agricultural conservation solutions,” said Denise Coleman, State Conservationist in Pennsylvania. “Conservation Innovation Grants have helped spur new tools and technologies to conserve natural resources, build resilience in producers’ operations and improve their bottom lines. This year will be the first time we are offering water reuse as a priority, and we’re excited to see how these projects play a role in USDA’s broader strategy for water reuse on agricultural land.”
Visit the NRCS-PA webpage for more information on services and assistance available to farmers and landowners.
