Got Land? Protect Your Natural Resources!
The Hamilton County Soil & Water Conservation District has partnered with the USDA Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS) to provide financial assistance for agricultural and forest management to Hamilton County landowners though the Resource Conservation Partnership Program.
There is funding available for residents who would like to enhance their agricultural practices through the installation of high tunnels over an existing garden.
Funding is also available for implementing forest management plans and wildlife habitat enhancement practices.
This is a regional watershed based grant program and applicant’s property must reside in the St Lawrence River, Black River, and Upper Hudson River watersheds.
Landowners who are not in those watersheds can still apply but they will be competing for funds through the general NRCS Environmental Quality Incentive Program.
