Applications are now being accepted by the United States Department of Agriculture/Natural Resources Conservation Service for the Mississippi Water Conservation Management Project through the Environmental Quality Incentives Program.
“This is an excellent opportunity to help our Mississippi producers voluntarily address the critical water supply concerns in the Mississippi Delta through this project," Kurt Readus, Mississippi NRCS state conservationist, said.
The program provides financial assistance to eligible owners and operators of irrigated agricultural land in regard to water conservation management resource issues. The focus will be on using management practices to address serious conservation issues related to water quantity.
Owners and operators of irrigated agricultural lands are eligible to apply for program benefits offered through the MWCMP.
In order for a producer to be considered for financial assistance, the land must be located within the MRVA. Also, producers must meet the EQIP requirements for financial assistance.
Producers interested in applying for financial assistance should contact the NRCS office in their local USDA Service Center.
