NRCS/EQUIP

Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) – Are you already doing the right thing by and for your land, like clearing buckthorn, thinning red pine, or growing organic food? You may be eligible for funds to help plan, implement, and maintain these ongoing forms of good land stewardship. The Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) is one of several ofered through the Dept. of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS).

Additional funds are available under EQIP for developing a Conservation Activity Plan (CAP) for your property (similar to the DNR’s Forest Stewardship Plans, only more flexible and readily written). Feel free to call us, (218) 723-4946, to learn more about EQIP and CAP.
