Mon, March 11, 2019


U. S. Department of Agriculture-Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) will offer funding in Macoupin County for the Upper Macoupin Creek Watershed project through the Regional Conservation Partnership Program (RCPP). 


NRCS partners with American Farmland Trust to help producers address resource concerns such as degraded water quality and soil erosion.


Producers can apply for assistance through the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) to implement practices such as drainage water management, denitrifying bioreactors, saturated buffers, cover crop, nutrient management, and no-till. The project focus is to improve water quality in the Upper Macoupin Creek Watershed located in portions of Macoupin County.


NRCS RCPP funding is available to Macoupin County producers whose land is located in the Upper Macoupin Creek Watershed.


To take advantage of this conservation funding opportunity, interested producers should submit applications by the cutoff dates of April 19 and May 17, 2019.


However, NRCS encourages producers to submit applications at any time to the NRCS Carlinville Field Office because they are accepted throughout the year.

Central IL Migratory Water Fowl Habitat Project

Mon, March 11, 2019

U. S. Department of Agriculture-Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) will offer special funding to improve habitat for migratory water fowl through the Mississippi River Basin Critical Conservation Area portion of the Regional Conservation Partnership Program (RCPP).


NRCS partners with the University of Illinois (U of I) to help producers address resource concerns such as improving wildlife habitat and water quality. Producers can apply for assistance through the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) to implement drainage water management and cover crop practices.


The primary focus is installation of drainage water management practices, which allow producers to manage water that normally leaves the farm through tile drainage. By working with NRCS and the U of I, landowners can manage water more efficiently and allow more habitat for migratory water fowl, such as the American Golden Plover. Drainage water management practices can be installed on new or existing field tile drainage systems located throughout central Illinois.   


NRCS RCPP funding is available to producers whose land is located in the following counties:  Christian, Macon, Shelby, Piatt, Moultrie, Champaign, Douglas, Coles, Cumberland, Vermilion, Edgar and Clark.


To take advantage of this conservation funding opportunity, interested producers should submit applications by the application cutoff dates of April 19 and May 17, 2019. NRCS reminds producers they can submit an EQIP application to their local field office at any time throughout the year.

To apply, eligible producers should contact their local NRCS field office or visit the Illinois NRCS website at www.il.nrcs.usda.gov.
