2012 Conservation Innovation Grant (CIG) Funding Opportunity
Natural Resources Conservation Service Funding Opportunity USDA-NRCS-NHQ-12-01
Posted Date: Jan 04, 2012
Closing Date: Jan 31, 2012
The purpose of CIG is to stimulate the development and adoption of innovative conservation approaches and technologies, while leveraging the federal investment in environmental enhancement and protection in conjunction with agricultural production. CIG projects are expected to lead to the transfer of conservation technologies, management systems, and innovative approaches.

It is a vehicle to stimulate development and adoption of conservation approaches or technologies that have been studied sufficiently to indicate a high likelihood of success, and that are a candidate for eventual technology transfer or institutionalization. CIG funds projects targeting innovative on-the-ground conservation, including pilot projects and field demonstrations. The two-phase evaluation process requires the applicant first to submit a pre-proposal. NRCS will accept applications for single or multi-year projects, not to exceed 3 years, submitted to NRCS from eligible entities including federally recognized Indian tribes, state and local units of government, and non-governmental organizations and individuals from all 50 States, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa, and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands. NRCS will request a full proposal package only from the applicants selected in the preproposal process. January 31, 2012 is the closing date for applicants to submit their pre-proposals application packages. Selected applicants will then be required to submit their full application proposal packages no later than 4 pm ET, April 6, 2012. http://www.grants.gov/search/search.do?mode=VIEW&oppId=136755
