Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP)

Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP)

Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) is the largest working lands program in the nation. EQIP uses a combination of cost-share and incentives to achieve environmental benefits. The priority resources concerns include air quality, grazing lands health, water quality and quantity. Examples of eligible practices include terrace construction, residue management, confined animal waste system construction, water development and deferred grazing. Sixty percent of the funds must be used on livestock related practices. For more information: http://www.nrcs.usda.gov/programs/eqip/
