USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) State Conservationist Salvador Salinas announced today that $4 million in disaster assistance is available to help with recovery after the 2011 historic drought and wildfire conditions across much of the state. Funds are being made available through the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP), which provides both financial and technical assistance to install measures that reduce post-fire damage and aid in the rehabilitation process.
Although EQIP sign-up is continuous, applications for this first funding period will be accepted in the County NRCS offices through April 13, 2012.
