Many conservation opportunities in the Farm Security and Rural Investment Act of 2002 (Farm Bill) address the unique circumstances and concerns of American Indians and Alaska Natives, beginning with farmers and ranchers, and limited resource farmers and ranchers. The 2002 Farm Bill promotes conservation of natural resources on agricultural land and land under the jurisdiction of an Indian Tribe. The specific activities of the Department of Agriculture, Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) are guided by the priorities set forth in the NRCS Strategic Plan. In the 2004 Strategic Plan, NRCS must continue to provide high quality services to traditional customers while reaching out to nontraditional and underserved customers and providing new services to customers who need very different kinds of information and technology. Therefore, NRCS announces the availability of funds for providing On-site Outreach and Training of the Farm Bill Programs to American Indians and Alaska Natives. Applicants are encouraged to review the full announcement carefully for an understanding of all requirements before submitting a proposal. Funds will be used to provide on-site outreach and Farm Bill training in implementing Farm Bill programs such as EQIP, WHIP, CSP, WRP, etc. See NRCS website http://www.nrcs.usda.gov/programs/farmbil/2002/products.htm. for more information regarding NRCS programs.
