Conservation Innovation Grant Opportunities: The Conservation Innovation Grant (CIG) Program for Colorado is a voluntary program which provides grants to stimulate the development and adoption of innovative conservation approaches and technologies while leveraging 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 or guides, or to the private sector. GIG 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. CIG funds projects targeting innovative on-the-ground conservation, including pilot projects and field demonstrations. Applications are accepted from qualified applicants within the state of Colorado. Selected applicants may receive grants of up to 50 percent of the total project cost not to exceed $75,000. Applicants must provide non-federal funding for at least 50 percent of the project cost. Up to 50 percent (25 percent of the total project cost) of the applicants match may be from in-kind contributions. The remainder must be cash contribution.
