MRBI Sign-Up Deadlines announced

Fri, April 22, 2016

NRCS announced the addition of two new Mississippi River Basin Healthy Watersheds Initiative (MRBI) projects in Illinois for fiscal year 2016. 

The two watersheds that were chosen are Clinton Lake and Upper Macoupin Creek watersheds, located in parts of DeWitt, Macoupin, McLean and Piatt Counties. 

USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) will manage the initiative by making financial and technical assistance available to eligible farmers for improving water quality in the priority watersheds.

Producers can apply for funds from NRCS’ Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) to assist in installing conservation practices such as cover crops, streambank and shoreline protection, nutrient management, grassed waterways, terraces, and water and sediment control basins on their land.

To compete for funding in 2016, applications must be submitted by one of the three application cutoff dates of May 20, June 17 and July 15, 2016.

Producers are encouraged to apply for financial assistance at any time throughout the year, as NRCS accepts applications on a continuous basis.

Illinois Watersheds – MRBI 2016

Clinton Lake – Approximately 185,523 acres in parts of DeWitt, McLean and Piatt Counties

Upper Macoupin Creek – Approximately 135,684 acres in Macoupin County
