Technical Assistance Grants

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Through a cooperative agreement with the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), in 2018 NACD awarded $9 million in funding to further enhance conservation district technical assistance across the nation. A significant portion of the granted funds were awarded directly to conservation districts to hire staff where additional capacity is needed to improve customer service and reduce workload pressure. In 2019, NACD and NRCS are partnering again to award funding to conservation districts across the nation.
