Conservation Innovation Grants 2012 - RI: 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 for projects in Rhode Island. Applications will be evaluated by a technical peer review panel based on the Criteria for Application Evaluation identified in this document. The panel will make recommendations for project approval to the State Conservationist. Final award selections will be made by the Rhode Island State Conservationist of NRCS. There are six CIG categories available in Rhode Island in FY 2012: Nutrient Management; Energy Conservation; Soil Health; Wildlife; Urban and Small Farms; and Aquaculture. Applications are requested from eligible government or non-government organizations or individuals for competitive consideration of grant awards for projects between one and three years in duration. This notice identifies the objectives for CIG projects, the eligibility criteria for projects, and associated instructions needed to apply to CIG.
