USDA Hosting Three Public Regional Conservation Partnership Program Q&A Sessions

Critical Conservation Areas (Click to Enlarge)
The Department of Agriculture's Natural Resources Conservation Service (USDA-NRCS) will host three public Regional Conservation Partnership Program (RCPP) question and answer sessions for potentials partners and applicants who have questions or need clarification regarding the related Announcement for Public Funding (APF). The information on the three events (two webinars (June 9 and 18) and one in-person meeting (June 6, in Washington, DC)) can be found here. On May 27, the USDA designated three areas all or partially within the Mississippi River Basin among eight priority conservation areas that will have access to a "Critical Conservation Area" pool of RCPP funding to be made available nationwide.

NRCS staff will be available during the events to answer questions on the APF and clarify unclear points. The webinars will be conducted using Adobe Connect and all participants are encouraged to review the instructions prior to the event. Instructions are found on the website. The June 6, in-person event at the USDA headquarters (Whitten Building) will be available for in-person participants only and will not have call-in capability.

All three sessions will be recorded and available for playback on this same webpage.
