A total of up to $275,000 is available for the New Jersey (State) CIG competition in FY 2022. There are three main priorities for NJ NRCS this year - Urban Agriculture, Climate Smart Agriculture, and Forestry/Wildlife.
 
 Projects may be between one and three years in duration. The maximum award amount for a single award is $275,000. The deadline to apply is May 23, 2022.
  
A webinar for CIG applicants is scheduled for March 31, 2022, at 1:00 p.m. Information on how to participate in the webinar will be posted to the NJ CIG website.
  
Previous recipients have included universities, conservation districts, farms, and soil districts for a wide range of projects including urban farming, habitat restoration, crop experimentation, and expanding pollinator species habitat.
