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.
