Pennsylvania NRCS CIG 2015: 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 into NRCS technical manuals and guides or to the private sector. CIG is
used to apply or demonstrate previously proven technology in order to increase adoption with an
emphasis on opportunities to scale proven, emerging conservation strategies. CIG promotes
sharing of skills, knowledge, technologies, and facilities among communities, governments, and
other institutions to ensure that scientific and technological developments are accessible to a
wider range of users. CIG funds projects targeting innovative on-the-ground conservation,
including pilot projects and field demonstrations. CIG does not fund research projects, with the
exception of on-farm conservation research. On-farm conservation research is defined as an
investigation conducted to answer a specified conservation-related question using a statistically
valid design, while employing farm-scale equipment on farm fields. Specifically, a valid study
design will use an appropriate number of replications and statistical analysis of results. To the
extent NRCS funds research projects through CIG, the Agency will only fund research projects
that stimulate innovative approaches to natural resource management in conjunction with
agricultural production.
NRCS will accept proposals under this notice for single or multiyear projects, not to exceed three
years, submitted by eligible entities including Indian Tribes, State and local units of government,
non-governmental organizations, and individuals.
Proposals will be screened for completeness and compliance with the provisions of this notice.
Incomplete and/or noncompliant proposals will be eliminated from competition, and notification
of elimination will be sent to the applicant. Complete proposals received by applicable deadlines
will be evaluated by a technical peer review panel based on the Proposal Evaluation Criteria
identified in the instructions in section V.B.
Considered proposals, along with their associated technical peer review and recommendations
will be forwarded to the State Conservationist who will make the final selections.
