USDA Invests $50 Million in Partnerships to Improve Equity in Conservation Programs, Address Climate Change
USDA is investing $50 million in 118 partnerships to expand access to conservation assistance for climate-smart agriculture and forestry.
The Equity Conservation Cooperative Agreements, administered by USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) will fund two-year projects to expand the delivery of conservation assistance to farmers who are new to farming, low income, socially disadvantaged or military veterans. Projects will support USDA’s broader effort to address climate change and equitable access to programs.
