published: August 1st 2018

TEMPLE, Texas, July 31, 2018 – USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) is now accepting drought assistance applications from farmers and ranchers impacted by ongoing drought conditions in 128 of Texas’ 254 counties.

 

 

 

NRCS in Texas is making funding available through the agency’s Environmental Quality Incentives PRogram (EQIP) for qualified agricultural producers to assist in conservation practices that help to sustain the lands natural resources during drought or assist during recovery.

In an effort to assist landowners during these difficult conditions, we are offering additional funding opportunities through EQIP. I encourage producers in impacted counties to reach out to their local NRCS field office.”

 

 

 

The sign up deadline for agricultural producers in the 128 counties is August 30, 2018. Funding decisions will be made by September 6, 2018.
