The purpose of CIG is to stimulate the development and adoption of innovative conservation approaches and technologies in conjunction with agricultural production while leveraging federal investment in environmental enhancement and protection. CIG projects are expected to lead to the transfer of conservation technologies, management systems, and innovative approaches (such as market-based systems) into NRCS technical manuals or guides or to the private sector. CIG does not fund research projects. Instead, it is a vehicle to stimulate the development and adoption of conservation approaches or technologies that have been studied sufficiently to indicate a likelihood of success and to be candidates for eventual technology transfer. The CIG program funds projects that target innovative on-the-ground conservation, including pilot projects and field demonstrations.NRCS will accept applications for single or multi-year projects, not to exceed three years, submitted by eligible entities, including federally recognized Indian Tribes, state and local governments, and non-governmental organizations and individuals. New York NRCS anticipates that the amount available for support of this program in Fiscal Year (FY) 2008 will be approximately $250,000, with individual grants not to exceed $75,000.New York component CIG projects must take place in New York; multi-state projects will not be considered. Complete applications will be screened for eligibility determination by appropriate NRCS staff. Applications determined eligible will be evaluated and scored by a sub-committee of the New York State Technical Committee (STC) and appropriate NRCS technical staff. (More information on the STC can be found athttp://policy.nrcs.usda.gov/scripts/lpsiis.dll/M/M_440_501_B.htm or by calling the New York State Office at 315-477-6503). Scored applications will be forwarded to the State Conservationist for final selection and funding decisions.
