Cost Share Programs for Forest Landowners Through NRCS
The Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) offers cost share programs for forest landowners through the Environmental Quality Incentive Program (EQIP) and through the Wildlife Habitat Incentive Program (WHIP).
EQIP will assist landowners with the writing of forest management plans, control of invasive plants and with work on improving the function/drainage of forest road systems to reduce environmental impacts. Landowners must sign up for the program by October 1 to qualify for the program for the next calendar year. Sign-ups are at NRCS offices around the state. Please visit the NRCS web site for NRCS locations and further information about NRCS programs for landowners.
