EQIP is a voluntary program that provides financial and technical assistance to agricultural producers to plan and implement conservation practices that improve soil, water, plant, animal, air and related natural resources on agricultural land and non-industrial private forestland. EQIP may also help producers meet federal, state, tribal, and local environmental regulations.

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis year-round, however there is a limited amount of funds per fiscal year. Funding cycle begins February annually.
