FARMINGTON — The USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service cutoff date is Friday, Dec. 20, for submitting applications for conservation program financial assistance in fiscal year 2014. Maine’s producers are encouraged to sign up now for the Environmental Quality Incentives Program initiatives and Conservation Activity Plans, which provide financial and technical assistance to address varying natural resource priorities.

Producers may apply any time as program sign-up is continuous; however, those who submit applications by close of business on Dec. 20 for certain initiatives will be considered for funding in Fiscal Year 2014.

For more information, contact Paul Hersey or Jade Gianforte at 207-778-4767, ext. 105, or stop by the 107 Park St. USDA office.
