Date: October 6, 2020 - 2:00pm

FLOYD COUNTY SWCD OFFICE PINE VIEW GOVERNMENT CENTER 2524 CORYDON PIKE / SUITE #103, NEW ALBANY, IN

The Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and the Floyd County Soil & Water Conservation District would like to invite you to participate in the Fiscal Year 2021 Ranking of Local Priorities. The Farm Bill designated the Local Working Groups as a subcommittee of the State Technical Committee (established by NRCS) to provide recommendations and advice with a focus on the resource priorities of the local county. The State Technical Committee is to assist in the making of recommendations relating to implementation of technical aspects of natural resource conservation activities and programs. This committee may be utilized by any USDA agency with conservation obligations.

With your help, we will identify the top 10 natural resource concerns and / or priorities in Floyd County for the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP). The Natural Resources Conservation Service will then use these rankings to evaluate and rank EQIP applications during 2020.

This meeting will be held on Tuesday, October 6, 2020 starting at 2:00 p.m. at the district office. The District office is located at 2524 Corydon Pike, Suite #103, New Albany, Indiana. For any questions or to make reservations, please call 812-945-9936.

We value your knowledge and input and look forward to your participation in this important meeting.
