Landowners in the Lower Big Blue NRD planning to install terraces, tile outlets, grassed waterways, or other conservation practices will have the opportunity to apply for cost-share assistance during the week of June 2-6th at their local NRCS office.
Landowners applying for cost-share assistance will make application at the NRCS offices in Beatrice, Fairbury, Wilber, and Pawnee City. It is estimated that State and NRD cost-share funds together will total approximately $200,000 for FY 2015. The maximum cost-share payment will be $4,500.00 for all applications. Last year, landowners installed over 130 miles of terraces, 35 acres of grassed waterways, and over 30 miles of tiled outlets in the Lower Big Blue NRD.
