Natural Resources Conservation Service

Mission Statement:

The Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) provides products and services that enable people to be good stewards of the Nation's soil, water, and related natural resources on non-Federal lands. With our help, people are better able to conserve, maintain, or improve their natural resources.

Motto: Helping People Help the Land

Services include providing technical assistance for environmental issues.

NRCS administers the 2014 Farm Bill programs such as:
  • Environmental Quality Incentive Program (EQIP)
  • Wildlife Habitat Incentive Program (WHIP)
  • Conservation Stewardship Program (CSP)
  • Wildlife Incentives for Non-Game and Game Species (WINGS)
Information on all programs administered by NRCS can be found at the Georgia Natural Resources Conservation Service website.
