A new hotline is available to guide you through the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) application process.
The EQIP program, administered by the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service, provides government-funded assistance for agricultural improvements that promote environmental quality.
The hotline is a new service provided by Engineered Storage Products Company, manufacturers of Slurrystore® waste-management systems. Dairy and livestock producers can call the toll-free hotline at (866) 376-EQIP, or visit www.slurrystore.com and click on the EQIP Hotline link.
The hotline will specialize in the EQIP-funding areas of waste storage (EQIP code 313) and manure transfer (EQIP code 634).
To receive EQIP funding, producers must meet eligibility requirements and file a detailed application for approval.
“Our EQIP hotline staff and dealer network will help guide producers through the evaluation and application process, which can be overwhelming for many producers,” says Dick Nelles, agricultural sales manager at Engineered Storage Products Company. “We’ll assist producers in determining their potential EQIP funding, and help them find the answers they need to complete their application.”
