USDA Announces Availability of Conservation Innovation Grants

The U.S. Department of Agriculture announces the availability of the State Component for Conservation Innovation Grants (CIG), through the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS). Proposals are due on April 1, 2011 and are accepted only from Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
CIG is a voluntary program intended to stimulate innovative conservation projects in conjunction with agricultural production. CIG enables NRCS to work with public and private entities to promote the use of promising technologies in order to address some of the nation’s most pressing natural resource concerns.

NRCS encourages landowners and organizations to explore the availability of these federal grants. Funds will be assigned for single- or multi-year projects, not to exceed three years. For more information on CIG and the grant application process, see the NRCS Web Site at nrcs.usda.gov/programs/cig, or contact: Jaime.valentin@pr.usda.gov
