Funding opportunities are currently available to landowners affected by the Asian Longhorned Beetle in the ALB quarantined areas of Clermont County through April 17, 2015.
 
The Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) is taking applications through the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP). This special initiative provides financial and technical assistance for improving forests due to ALB disturbances. Controlling invasive species such as
  • honeysuckle
  • grapevine
  • ailanthus
  • tree planting (in eligible areas)
  • forest stand improvement are a few of the practices being offered.

EQIP is a popular program in the county for implementing conservation practices on cropland, pastureland, and forested land. For additional information, download flyer here.  Please call Natural Resources Conservation Service at 513-732-2181.
