The 2018 Technical Assistance Grant agreement includes:
- $9 million for conservation planning and Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) implementation assistance
- $1 million for NACD to manage the project
- A 25 percent match is required for each agreement. Match is preferably cash, but in-kind will be considered. NACD is required overall to have a 25 percent match for each agreement it makes with a district; however, NACD will be providing the first 5 percent. Conservation districts will need to supply the remaining 20 percent. Most contracts will cover funding for a one-year period.
NACD will ask state/territory conservation partnerships to identify high-priority locations for the use of these funds. Funding will be awarded in batches on an ongoing basis as proposals are received with attention to parity across the country.
NACD’s priority is to get the $9 million in the hands of conservation districts so they can hire employees to help carry out the objectives of this agreement. Funding assumptions are that this $9 million would hire about 180 full-time equivalents (FTEs). Some will likely be part-time, contractual, and/or serve multiple districts.
