Regional Conservation Partnership Program

The Marshall-Putnam SWCD was awarded $1.5 million in RCPP funding, in 2018, to be dedicated exclusively to Marshall and Putnam Counties.  This money was used for conservation projects, soil health, water and air quality improvements, nutrient loss reduction strategies and more through the EQIP and CSP programs. Under RCPP, EQIP allowed for 75% cost-share on conservation practices while CSP is a program to help enhance your current farming practices, allowing cost-share for the things implemented.

While the partnership with NRCS-RCPP has concluded, we are working hard to bring more grant opportunities into the District for programs and cost-share opportunities.

We would like to extend a big thank you to the people and businesses below who have partnered with us so far, to help get all cost-share programs working in Marshall and Putnam Counties. Anyone who would like to partner with the District, please contact the office and discuss the possibilities!
