The Northern Rhode Island Conservation District (NRICD) and the USDA- Natural Resources Conservation Service funding may be available for conservation practices on your property. This workshop wil help you to determine if you qualify for both financial and technical assistance on your agricultural land or wood lot! To be eligible for EQIP programming, you must be able to show $1,000 in agricultural production annually (forestry exempt), and demonstrate a need/concern for resource management on your property.

The Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) is a cost-share program designed to improve natural resource quality while enhancing agriculture production. These funds can assist with forestry, agriculture, livestock and greenhouse operations. Cost-share practices include (but are not limited to): grazing plans, irrigation systems, nutrient management, forestry plans, heavy-use areas, erosion control, prescribed thinning, pollinator habitats, stream crossings, hoop house installation, riparian buffers and energy audits.

Registration: Optional, but recommended (in order to estimate the number of participants).
Maximum: 30 attendees

Presenters(s): Kate Sayles, Northern Rhode Island Conservation District, and a presenter from the United States Department of Agriculture-Natural Resources Conservation Service.
