NRCS has $3 million for Montana Farmers & Ranchers Impacted by Wildfires

NRCS has $3 million for Montana Farmers & Ranchers Impacted by Wildfires

8/3/2017 4:25:00 AM/Categories: General News, Today's Top 5, Livestock, Grains, Wildfire

The USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) is offering technical and financial assistance to agricultural landowners impacted by 2017 wildfires across Montana.

NRCS is accepting applications for its 
Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) to assist with livestock grazing deferment, damaged fence and post removal, livestock fencing, water facility development, critical area plantings, and cover crops. NRCS accepts conservation program applications year-round; however, applications for 2017 wildfire recovery funding must be submitted by Aug. 15, 2017.

This week the Northern Ag Network's Russell Nemetz talked with the NRCS State Conservationist for Montana about this $3 million in funding and a couple of very important informational meetings taking place in Sand Springs and Jordan, MT on August 3, 2017.

Three million will not even scratch the surface of what needs yo be done! NRCS needs to go back to the table to find more money! Of all the money that is wasted on frivolous projects, take it and make it available to projects that help the farmers regain footing after the fires!
