Conservation Innovation Grants (CIG) - Kansas State Component: The purpose of CIG is to stimulate the development and adoption of innovative conservation approaches and technologies while leveraging the federal investment in environmental enhancement and protection, in conjunction with agricultural production. CIG projects are expected to lead to the transfer of conservation technologies, management systems, and innovative approaches (such as market-based systems) into NRCS technical manuals, guides, and references, or to the private sector. CIG does not fund research projects. Instead, it is a vehicle to stimulate the development and adoption of conservation approaches or technologies that have been studied sufficiently to indicate a likelihood of success and to be candidates for eventual technology transfer or institutionalization. CIG funds projects targeting innovative on-the-ground conservation, including pilot projects and field demonstrations. Kansas NRCS will accept applications for single or multi-year projects, not to exceed three years, submitted to NRCS from eligible entities, including federally recognized Indian tribes, state and local governments, non-governmental organizations, and individuals. Applications are accepted from all 50 states, the Caribbean Area (Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands), and the Pacific Basin Area (Guam, American Samoa, and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands). Kansas component CIG projects must take place in Kansas; multi-state projects will not be considered. Complete applications will be screened for eligibility determination by appropriate NRCS staff. Applications determined eligible will be evaluated and scored by a subcommittee of the Kansas Technical Committee (KTC). Scored applications will be forwarded to the State Conservationist for final selection and funding decisions.
