Virginia Conservation Innovation Grant Opportunity: The Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) is announcing availability of Conservation Innovation Grants (CIG) to stimulate the development and adoption of innovative conservation approaches and technologies within the state of Virginia. NRCS/VA anticipates that the amount available for support of this program in FY 2010 will be approximately $150,000. Applications are requested from eligible governmental or non-governmental organizations or individuals for competitive consideration of grant awards for projects between 1 and 3 years in duration. Individual grants will not exceed $75,000. Funds will be awarded through a two-phase statewide competitive grants process which will include a pre-proposal for all applications, and a full application package only for competitively selected pre-proposal applicants, pursuant to notification by NRCS/VA. Both phases are described in this announcement, but only pre-proposals are being solicited at this time. This notice identifies the objectives for CIG projects, the eligibility criteria for projects, and provides the instructions needed to apply for a CIG. Each pre-proposal will be screened for completeness and compliance with the provisions of this notice. Incomplete applications will be eliminated from competition, and notification of elimination will be mailed to the applicant. NRCS will request a full application package only from those applicants selected after review of the pre-proposals.
