The funding is available through the Natural Resources Conservation Service’s Environmental Quality Incentives Program to help producers use water more efficiently, stabilize fallowed cropland and protect their livelihoods for the future. “Working with our federal, state, and local partners, we are doing everything within our power to support those farmers and ranchers affected by this intense drought.” said Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack. Producers have until March 3 to apply for the available funds. Learn more.
