GRANTS AVAILABLE FOR MAGSA LANDOWNERS

MAGSA hosted an NRCS EQIP Application Webinar on August 10

A $1 million funding pool is available to MAGSA landowners every year for the next 4 years through USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service’s (NRCS) Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) WaterSMART Initiative.

This funding pool is set aside for MAGSA landowners only! Those who are eligible to receive funds must meet NRCS EQIP eligibility requirements. To be eligible, an applicant must own or lease and manage their land, and have an average gross income of $900,000 or less.

Eligible projects may include: water delivery automation & monitoring; irrigation water management & conveyance; sprinkler irrigation systems, & more. We strongly encourage you to use this opportunity to fund your well meters and telemetry! (MAGSA’s Implementing Rules & Regulations for Groundwater Well Metering, Measurement, Monitoring, and Construction Policy outlines requirements for well meters and telemetry by January 31, 2025).

This webinar was for MAGSA landowners and operators who are interested in applying for a share of this funding. Attendees left this event with a clear understanding of the EQIP application process, including how to enroll in the Farm Service Agency (a critical first step!), made connections to local NRCS field office staff, and gained confidence in completing the application process.
