Applications for Blaine and Philips counties conservation projects due April 19

 


From NRCS

BOZEMAN — Agricultural producers in Blaine and Phillips counties have until April 19, 2019, to apply for financial assistance for conservation practices through the Natural Resources Conservation Service’s Regional Conservation Partnership Program. This partnership project provides an opportunity for producers to manage their working lands in a way that is compatible with agricultural production and good stewardship.

In 2017, a proposal submitted by Ducks Unlimited was accepted by NRCS to be part of a program that provides funding for partnership projects between public and private entities, local communities and nongovernmental organizations.

The Ducks Unlimited Prairie Pothole Region Working Lands RCPP project is funded through the Environmental Quality Incentives Program to utilize the grassland resource of expiring Conservation Reserve Program contracts for grass-based agriculture, restore marginally productive croplands back to grasslands and wetlands, and improve the management of working lands for agricultural production while minimizing impacts to natural resources.

For more information or to apply, visit your local USDA service center. The address and phone number for each is below.

• Blaine County – 228 Ohio Street, Chinook or 357-2320

• Phillips County – 1120 U.S. Highway 191 South, Suite 2, Malta or 654-1334
