NACD Announces $2.1 Million In 2021 Technical Assistance Grants

Wed, 28 Jul 2021 09:37:20 CDT

NACD Announces $2.1 Million In 2021 Technical Assistance Grants Today, the National Association of Conservation Districts (NACD) announced the award of $2.1 million in new technical assistance (TA) grants to nearly 60 conservation districts in 23 states and territories.

These grants, made possible through an agreement with the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), complement the $13 million in technical assistance grants awarded to previous grantees in April of this year.

“These grants will help conservation districts carry out conservation plans for customers in high priority areas,” NACD President Michael Crowder said.

State conservation partnership leaders helped identify high priority locations and workloads to guide where the awards would best be placed. The funds announced today will support approximately 90 full- and part-time individuals, of whom nearly half are new hires. More than $600,000 of matching funds will be added to these awards, furthering the impact of these grants.

“Through the TA Grants program, NACD and NRCS have been able to help bring conservation plans to landowners quicker,” Crowder said. “These conservation plans are crucial in addressing local natural resource needs and bettering our communities."

To date in 2021, NACD and NRCS have awarded $15 million in technical assistance grants. Since the program’s inception, NACD has nationally awarded nearly $50 million in technical assistance grants, with recipients in all 50 states and three U.S. territories.
