Recent improvements in federal funding for the USDA Small Watershed Program (Public Law 83-566) are a big plus for project sponsors. The growing stream of funds for new construction and rehabilitation of dams has highlighted the need for additional focus on project sponsor/NRCS communication.
On September 18, 2018 the National Watershed Coalition will host a seminar and listening session for Watershed Project Sponsors and their partners. National NRCS Watershed Program leaders will be present. The goals of the seminar session include sharing information on current procedures and policies for sponsors who want to start new projects, rehabilitate aging dams or utilize the Watershed Program authorities in conjunction with an RCPP project.
The goal for the listening session is to provide an opportunity for sponsors and their partners to interact with USDA-NRCS Watershed Program national leadership. NRCS leaders are interested in hearing from you. The session will provide an opportunity for input, questions and comments concerning the Watershed Program.
Please return registration form by September 5th to: National Watershed Coalition, P.O. Box 566, Pawnee, OK 74058 or scanned and emailed to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
