Applications are now open to the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS)Fiscal Year 2017 Regional Conservation Partnership Program. Nationally, $260 million will be available for projects that address regional landscape-scale resource priorities.
The Regional Conservation Partnership Program (RCPP), created in the 2014 Farm Bill, can be an excellent source of financial and technical assistance funding for landowners in RCP regions. Funded projects seek to address resource concerns, such as water quality, soil health, and habitat connectivity and are intended to increase cooperation and foster innovation.
Pre-proposals for projects are due May 10.
The Land Trust Alliance will be hosting a conference call on March 30 for those interested in learning about the RCPP.
Wednesday, March 30 | 2:00 p.m. EST
Dial: 888-228-0571 (there is no passcode).
