Assistance is available for the implementation of management practices that protect the natural resources within our District. There are a variety of best management practices (BMPs) that any landowner can implement to help conserve soil, improve water and air quality, and enhance wildlife habitat. If you have a resource concern or are just interested in improving current management practices, please contact us at 659-1553. 

 

WRIA 34 Palouse Watershed Regional Conservation Partnership Program

ACD is excited to announce the third sign up period for the WRIA 34 Palouse Watershed Regional Conservation Partnership Program (RCPP). As a partner in this program Adams CD has committed to help landowners install 20 acres of riparian buffer and 2,000 acres of conservation tillage by June 2020. Implementation assistance through RCPP EQIP is now available. RCPP EQIP funding is separate from NRCS’s general EQIP, so operators may apply for both. To sign up for this program come by the office or give Cara a call at 509-659-1553 ext 1. Sign up deadline for 2018 assistance is June 30th, 2017. You may apply at any time to be considered for future funding. 

Take a look at this map of the WRIA 34 area that's part of ACD to see if your proposed project site is within the program boundaries.

Each applicant must establish themselves as a USDA customer and complete all Farm Service Agency (FSA) eligibility requirements. Applicants who apply as entities must provide a DUNS number, be registered in the System for Award Management (SAM), and maintain an active registration with current information prior to applying for funding and to remain eligible for payments under a funded contract. For more information regarding SAM and DUNS contact the local FSA/NRCS office at 659-1761, both offices are located at 506 Weber Avenue in Ritzville.
