The U.S. Department of Agriculture — Natural Resources Conservation Service (USDA-NRCS) will host a webinar for Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands conservation partners to provide information on current grant funding opportunities, the federal application process, budget allowability and review process. There will be a discussion of the following open funding opportunities:
Conservation Innovation Grants (CIG)
National Water Quality Initiative (NWQI) grants
Caribbean Partners for Conservation (CPC) grants have a short timeframe for accepting applications:
CIG- Due May 31
NWQI- Due May 25
CPC- 35 days after posting
NRCS program managers will be available to answer any questions. They want to ensure that they provide the resources for everyone to submit strong proposals.
Partners are crucial to the agency, and it hopes that interested individuals will consider these opportunities to the benefit of their organization, natural resources and Caribbean area farmers, ranchers and non-industrial private forest landowners.
