Resource Conservation Agency (NRCS), an agency of the United States Department
of Agriculture, provides technical assistance to Districts in order to
help us implement our conservation programs. In 1993, through the Farm
Bill, NRCS expanded its focus on natural resource problems to include
not only soil issues, but water quality, wetlands, and wildlife habitat.
puts nearly 70 years of experience to work in assisting owners of America's
private land with conserving their soil, water, and other natural resources.
Local, state and federal agencies and policymakers also rely on our expertise.
We deliver technical assistance based on sound science and suited to a
customer's specific needs. Cost shares and financial incentives are available
in some cases. Most work is done with local partners known in North Carolina
as Soil and Water Conservation Districts. Every county in North Carolina
is served by a Soil and Water Conservation District and NRCS office.
Natural Resources Conservation Service provides leadership in
a partnership effort to help people conserve, maintain, and improve
our natural resources and environment
