Conservation Innovation Grant: The purpose of CIG is to stimulate the development and adoption of innovative conservation approaches and technologies in conjunction with agricultural production while leveraging federal investment in environmental enhancement and protection. All 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 or guides or to the private sector. The 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. The CIG program funds projects that target innovative on-the-ground conservation, including pilot projects and field demonstrations. Innovative Conservation Projects or Activities For the purposes of CIG, the proposed innovative project or activity must encompass the development and field-testing, evaluation, and implementation of: Conservation adoption incentive systems, including market-based systems. Promising conservation technologies, practices, systems, procedures, or approaches. To be given priority consideration, the innovative project or activity: Will have been studied sufficiently to indicate a good probability for success. Demonstrates, tests, evaluates, and verifies environmental (soil, water, air, plants, and animal) effectiveness, utility, affordability, and usability in the field. Adapts conservation technologies, practices, systems, procedures, approaches, and incentive systems to improve performance and encourage adoption.
