Eligible practices include terrace systems with either grassed waterways or underground "tile" outlets, grassed waterways, diversion, water and sediment control basins, or the seeding of grass on cropland.
In addition to assisting the landowner with the planning and design of the practices, the NRD reimburses the landowner for a portion of the installation cost. Assistance varies from county to county across the NRD. The cost-share percentage paid by the NRD is typically 60% of the county average cost.
Contact your local USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service Office to determine what soil and water conservation practices are needed and the most current information concerning this cost-share program in your county.
