Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQUIP) Application Deadline

Small forest landowners and other agricultural producers have until January 17, 2014 to apply for financial and technical assistance through the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQUIP).  The program is designed to help landowners improve irrigation efficiency; manage nutrient run-off and/or animal waste; improve the health of native plant communities; and reduce soil loss. If additional funding is available, a second signup cut-off is set for March 21, 2014 and a third for May 16, 2014.
