how usda nrcs can aid your land management

 

Did you know that through the National Resource Conservation Service in Texas, eligible landowners can receive financial and technical assistance in natural resource management?  Through grants, incentive programs, and stewardship programs, Texas landowners can find ways to sustainably manage their land and production. The goal of the program is to help implement conservative practices into your land, so not only will you be able to have immediate help with your land, but you will have secured the future for your land. 

Not only does the United States Department of Agriculture offer financial aid, but they also have programs that help in landscape planning, which includes ways to avoid watershed damage from the flash floods that frequent Texas. This also includes their Emergency Watershed Protection Program (EWPP) that aides with disaster relief in the case of emergency. 

Another USDA service is providing easements to landowners that are trying to protect their property resources. If your land has "significant natural resources," then WRP, GRP, and FRPP funds are granted through the USDA to help you in your endeavor. 

The land of Texas is important to our state's economy, and the USDA makes an effort to aid people who need a helping hand in their land ownership and management. With all of these resources and more available, it is worth your time to check out the NRCS website and see if you and your land qualify for aid.
