The deadline to apply for priority assistance from the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) for two of its Farm Bill programs is Aug. 1. NRCS provides financial and technical assistance to help Kershaw County landowners address natural resource concerns, promote environmental quality, and protect wildlife habitat on property they own or control. The cost-share funds are available to eligible applicants through the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) and the Wildlife Habitat Incentives Program (WHIP), both administered by the local NRCS office.
