The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Conservation Service has announced a special Environmental Quality Incentives Program sign-up Nov. 28-Dec. 28 to help agricultural producers who suffered damage from Hurricane Irma with financial and technical assistance.
Conservation practices available through this funding specifically address natural resource concerns from hurricane flood and wind damage, and provide future protection from exceptional storm events.
Manatee and Sarasota counties are among the declared disaster counties that are eligible under this sign-up.
Farmers and ranchers seeking financial and technical assistance can sign up at the Manasota Service Center, 6942 Professional Parkway E., Sarasota 34240.
