NRCS Idaho Issues Call for Conservation Innovation Grant Proposals

BOISE– The Natural Resources Conservation Service, an agency under the United States Department of Agriculture, is issuing a call for proposals for the Conservation Innovation Grants program. This program is designed to stimulate the development and adoption of innovative conservation approaches and technologies. 
NRCS Idaho anticipates that in the state the amount available for support of this program in FY 2017 will be up to $150,000.  Full proposals for projects between one and three years in duration are requested from eligible governmental or non-governmental organizations or individuals for competitive consideration.
“With all the developing technologies being developed and happening here in Idaho, I’m really hopeful to see innovative proposals for this year’s grant cycle,” said Curtis Elke, NRCS state conservation for Idaho. “Merging cutting edge science with agriculture has considerable potential to accelerate conservation among Idaho’s producers in a way that is both resource sustainable and economically beneficial.”
Proposals will be screened for completeness and compliance with the provisions of the CIG program guidelines.  Incomplete and/or noncompliant proposals will be eliminated from competition.  More information about the program and the guidelines for proposals can be found on the NRCS Idaho website.
WHAT: Proposals sought for NRCS Conservation Innovation Grant program projects.
WHEN:  Full proposals must be received by NRCS before 4 p.m. on April 14, 2017.
WHERE:  Full proposals must be sent electronically through www.grants.gov offsite link image    .  In addition proposals must be emailed to denise.adkins@id.usda.gov  in PDF format.
