Conservation Innovation Grants
Conservation Innovation Grants (CIG) is a voluntary program intended to
stimulate the development and adoption of innovative conservation approaches and
technologies while leveraging Federal investment in environmental enhancement
and protection, in conjunction with agricultural production. Under CIG,
Environmental Quality Incentives Program funds are used to award competitive
grants to non-Federal governmental or non-governmental organizations, Tribes, or
individuals. CIG enables NRCS to work with other public and private entities to
accelerate technology transfer and adoption of promising technologies and
approaches to address some of the Nation's most pressing natural resource
concerns. CIG will benefit agricultural producers by providing more options for
environmental enhancement and compliance with Federal, State, and local
regulations. NRCS administers CIG.
