USDA NRCS to invest up to $360 million in partner-driven conservation

USDA’s NRCS invited potential conservation partners to submit project applications for federal funding through the Regional Conservation Partnership Program (RCPP). NRCS will award up to $360 million dollars to locally driven, public-private partnerships that improve the nation’s water quality, combat drought, enhance soil health, support wildlife habitat and protect agricultural viability. USDA is now accepting proposals for RCPP through the RCPP portal. Proposals are due November 4, 2020.
