EQIP, RCPP Signup for 2023 Funding Due in November
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 09/29/2022

Farmers and forest landowners may want to plan ahead and sign up early for USDA conservation funding. Acting State Conservationist Jeff Vander Wilt says those who are interested in Environmental Quality Incentives Program or Regional Conservation Partnership Program producer contracts need to apply by November 4 for funding in fiscal year 2023.

Although NRCS accepts applications year-round, applications must be received now for fiscal year 2023 funding consideration at any USDA Service Center in Wisconsin.

"The Farm Bill allows NRCS to support conservation that ensures cost-effective financial assistance for improved soil health, water and air quality and other natural resources benefits," said Vander Wilt. "By getting EQIP or RCPP applications in early, NRCS staff will have time to assist in planning conservation practice needs."

EQIP and RCPP are the primary programs available to farmers and landowners for farm and woodland conservation work, offering payments for more than 120 conservation practices.

Last year, Wisconsin NRCS invested $34 million in conservation practices through EQIP and RCPP practices.
