USDA Loans to Restore Land in Ohio

The United State Department of Agriculture (USDA) Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) is offering up to $30 million in loans to landowners, including farmers, in flood-prone areas of Ohio.
The floodplain easement component of the Emergency Watershed Program (EWP) will be used to frequently restore flooded land.
“We will be working with landowners who voluntarily agree to restore the floodplains to their natural condition by placing their land into easements,” State Conservationist Terry Cosby said. “These easements will convert environmentally sensitive lands into riparian corridors and wooded bottom lands that are so vital for fish and wildlife habitat to mitigate downstream flooding.”
The funding is part of the America Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.
Landowners, including farmers, can sign up until March 27 at their local USDA Service Center NRCS Office.
