2016 Program Delivery of Farm Bill Program

The Natural Resources Conservation Service in Georgia is soliciting feedback from the Local Workgroup for the 2016 Program Delivery of Farm Bill Programs.   Our specific areas where assistance is needed include prioritizing resource concerns, allocation of funding by resource concerns and establishing payment maximums.

The Marietta Local Work Group meeting will be held on November 5rd, 2015 at 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM.  The meeting place is the Douglas County UGA Extension Office located at 6279 Fairburn Road, Douglasville, GA 30134. Please RSVP by Friday, October 30, 2015 to anne.thompson@ga.usda.gov.

The NRCS State Office allocates EQIP funds to each Funding Unit through the State.  The Marietta Field Office Funding Unit covers Cobb, Douglas, Fulton and Paulding counties.  Once the funding allocation has been received, the funds will be placed in the resource concerns recommended by the Local Work Group.

Information from the 2015 funding year is attached for your review in preparation for this 2016 Local Workgroup meeting.
