Conservation Assistance

Numerous conservation programs exist to help landowners implement soil and water best management practices (BMPs). Much of the conservation assistance we provide within the Payette Soil & Water Conservation District is enhanced by unique partnerships with our state and federal partners. Specifically, our leadership allows for technical and financial conservation assistance provided by the USDA-Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and the Idaho Soil & Water Conservation Commission (ISWCC) to be delivered more efficiently at the local level.

Idaho SWCC Programs & Services

The Idaho Soil & Water Conservation Commission is the designated state agency responsible for offering “such assistance as may be appropriate to the supervisors of soil conservation districts in the carrying out of their powers and programs.” In addition, they provide incentive programs and technical assistance to local farmers and ranchers to promote and support conservation.

Resource Conservation and Rangeland Development Loan Program (RCRDP) – The Conservation Commission offers landowners low-interest loans to install conservation measures on private property. Eligible projects address soil and water issues, like improving riparian areas or enhancing fish and wildlife habitat. A partial list of eligible projects includes:

  • Irrigation equipment
  • No-till drills
  • Animal feeding operation improvements
  • Livestock fencing
  • Stream bank protection
