(Environmental Quality Incentives Program from NRCS)
(EQIP) is a voluntary conservation program. Through EQIP, agricultural producers and
forest land owners can receive financial and technical assistance to implement structural,
vegetative and management conservation practices that optimize environmental benefits
on working agricultural and forest land.
You may request FREE technical assistance with no obligation to enter into payment incentive contracts. Find your local NRCS office here to set up a site visit. However, if you sign a contract, you must fulfill it.
Before you can apply for EQIP or other NRCS programs, you must register for a farm number with FSA.
