The USDA-Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) in Texas has established two special Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) sign ups to help farmers and ranchers that suffered damage to working lands and livestock mortality as a result of Hurricane Harvey . . .
An EQIP special sign up specific to agricultural livestock mortality and carcass disposal is now open and available to immediately assist producers in disposal of livestock carcasses on their farm or ranch. This special sign up ends September 22, 2017 . . .
Conservation practices available through this EQIP funding are specifically designed to address flood and wind damage, and excessive runoff to address natural resource concerns caused by the hurricane and provide future protection from exceptional storm events . . .
