NRCS is the branch of the U.S. Department of Agriculture that handles all financial assistance and a great deal of the technical assistance and specifications for projects. Their natural resources conservation programs help landowners reduce soil erosion, enhance water supplies, improve water quality, increase wildlife habitat, and reduce damages caused by floods and other natural disasters. The Service works closely with the county based Soil & Water Conservation Districts. Its mission also includes education related to these programs.
