Oregon Conservation Innovation Grants: 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 and forestry 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. 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. Applicants submitting proposals for the Oregon CIG may request up to, but not exceed $75,000 of matching federal funds. Applicants must provide a least 50 percent non-federal match with 25% of the total project being in-kind and the other 25 percent being cash contributions. The proposal must involve NRCS Environmental Quality Incentive Program (EQIP)-eligible producers and should demonstrate the use of innovative technologies or approaches to address a natural resource concern in one of the following sub-categories: energy, climate change mitigation and adaptation, water quality or quantity, wildlife habitat, and plant health/vigor.
