Program accomplishments...

Over 1,300 State priority areas were submitted. These proposals far exceeded the available funds for fiscal year 1998. When fund allocations were made to the States, it resulted in 655 approved priority areas being funded. Over 55,000 applications were received in fiscal year 1998. NRCS estimates that it would require over $490 million to fully fund all of the applications received last year, alone, which is three times the available financial assistance funds. After NRCS ranked the applications based on criteria developed at the local and state level, FSA county committees approved over 19,800 long- term contracts with farmers and ranchers. The EQIP financial assistance on these contracts will exceed $157 million over the 5 to 10 year length of the contracts.
