Underserved producers eligible for EQIP advanced payment option
June 16, 2022
Implementing new conservation practices has many benefits for farms and ranches, but can sometimes be cost prohibitive for beginning, veteran, and socially disadvantaged producers. However, there are conservation programs that can help with those costs, even upfront.
The Environmental Quality Incentives Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture Natural Resources Conservation Service, is one of the nation’s leading working lands conservation programs. EQIP helps producers implement new practices on active operations by providing both financial and technical assistance.
