Description:

The Environmental Quality Incentive Program (EQIP) is a voluntary conservation program that promotes agricultural production and environmental quality. The objective of EQIP is to provide technical and financial help to producers in planning, designing and implementing conservation practices that contribute to agricultural/forestall viability, water quality improvements, soil and plant health, wildlife habitat improvements and other natural resource enhancements. Applicants will be responsible for assisting NRCS in providing technical assistance necessary to plan and implement conservation practices to assist land users dealing with forest resource issues.

The successful applicant will be responsible for: making field visits, evaluating and scoring EQIP forestry applications, developing forestry management plans for successful candidates, establishing and certifying conservation practices according to NRCS Standards and Specifications. All work will be in compliance with EQIP guidelines, evaluating the planned practices by a standard set of evaluation criteria furnished by NRCS, and providing technical assistance to implement these practices when approved by NRCS. The applicant will also need to provide technical assistance to land users who are implementing forestry practices approved in prior year EQIP contracts where implementation is planned for the current fiscal year.
