USDA’s Natural Resources Service (NRCS) today announced that it is investing $1.1 million in Texas for a partner-driven conservation project through its Regional Conservation Partnership Program (RCPP). NRCS will leverage nearly $1.6 million in partner contributions over the next five years.
“With the first RCPP awards under the 2018 Farm Bill, we are excited to see quality conservation being implemented to help restore spring flow to one of the most historical springs of Texas,” said Drenda Williams, NRCS acting state conservationist for Texas. “Through collaboration and aligning our resources toward a common goal, we’re making an impact for natural resource conservation that could never have been realized on our own.”
