Erosion Control on burned properties can be a problem. Check out the flyer links for programs that can help through the USDA/NRCS links below and contacts on the RESOURCES page.
IMPORTANT DEADLINES FOR ASSISTANCE APPLICATIONS WITH NRCS: Erosion Conrtol help and Ag assistance programs for Grants and Loans.
The March 17th deadline is no longer a feasible application processing deadline due to the time and paperwork involved for completion of those application processing windows,
However applications for the June 9th deadline can be accepted and will start to be processed for that additional upcoming program deadline . It takes approximately a month to acheive the application completion status so keep that in mind and get the application started and submitted as soon as possible.
