2022 Technical Assistance Grants

Like previous Technical Assistance (TA) Grants the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) has entered into a fifth agreement with NACD to provide funding to further enhance conservation district technical assistance across the nation.

All of the grants from this agreement were directed to continue funding the work that was started in one of the previous agreements. Nationally, nearly 500 full- and part-time staff positions are supported using the funds. Some positions were filled by contractors and some covered multiple districts. The requirement for match of 25 percent, of which NACD would provide the first 5 percent. Grant recipients would supplied the remaining 20 percent.

In August 2022, NACD announced the award of $15 million in priority request awards to nearly 500 conservation districts in 49 states and territories.

This cooperative agreement included $15 million in funding to support hiring for conservation operations planning assistance (COTA) and to assist with implementing Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) and Conservation Stewardship Program (CSP) contracts.
