Oklahoma Black Historical Research Project Receives $600,000 to Enhance Conservation Practices

Fri, 09 Jun 2017 09:59:11 CDT

Oklahoma Black Historical Research Project Receives $600,000 to Enhance Conservation Practices The USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) today announced that the agency will award more than $22.6 million to drive public and private sector innovation in resource conservation. The Oklahoma Black Historical Research Project has been selected and has been awarded $600,000 in federal funds.

The agency is investing in 33 projects nationwide through the competitive Conservation Innovation Grants (CIG) program, which helps develop the tools, technologies, and strategies to support next-generation conservation efforts on working lands and develop market-based solutions to resource challenges.

Oklahoma Black Historical Research Project, Inc. proposes to enhance agricultural production and sustainability of Native American and socially-disadvantaged farmers and ranchers in Oklahoma through the dissemination of solar water pump technology. This low-cost, low-input technology is ideal for small, limited resource producers in a state often strained by limited water resources.
