Texas Conservation Innovation Grant: 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. 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, and non-governmental organizations and individuals. Applications are accepted from eligible entities located in the state of Texas. Complete applications will be screened for eligibility determination by appropriate NRCS staff. Applications determined eligible will be evaluated and scored by members of the State Technical Committee. (More information on the State Technical Committee can be found at http://www.nrcs.usda.gov/programs/statetech/ or by calling the Texas State Office at 254-742-9800) Scored applications will be forwarded to the State Conservationist for approval.
