NRCS Farm Programs
The 2014 Farm Bill programs are offered through the Natural Resources Conservation
Service. These programs include:
Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP)
This cost-share program identifies local resource concerns and sets priorities to address
issues such as soil erosion, water quality, and wildlife habitat. EQIP is available in all 46
counties to address statewide resource concerns. Sixty-five percent of EQIP funds are
targeted toward approved Conservation Priority Areas. State Conservation Priority Areas
have been identified by local work groups, ranked by the State Technical Committee and
submitted to Washington for approval. Practices such as cross fencing, watering tank
installation, field borders, filter strips and grassed waterways may be covered under this
program. Contact our office today to see if your farm qualifies!
The Spartanburg Soil and Water Conservation District and our partners, the Natural Resources Conservation Service, provide the following services to local landowners:
