Regional Conservation Partnership Program

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 Regional Conservation Partnership Program.

Funding is available for: 

  • installing high tunnels over an existing garden
  • implementing forest management plans
  • wildlife habitat enhancement practices

This is a regional watershed based grant program and the applicant’s property must reside in the St Lawrence River, Black River, or 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.

The sign up period has started and applications are now being accepted. For those who are interested in learning more about the program please contact the District office at 518-548-3991, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

The District’s accomplishments would not be possible without the support of the State of New York, Hamilton County, and FLLOWPA.
