posted on February 5, 2014 1:35pm

USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) again has a special EQIP funding pool for farmers who have only 1 or 2 practices left to complete before requesting MAEAP verification. This special funding was a recommendation from the EQIP sub-committee, endorsed by the Michigan Technical Committee. The rules are the same as last year when this was offered and the size of the funding pool is about the same. Application cutoff is February 21, 2014. Please direct questions to your local NRCS district conservationist.
