Gulf Coast Conservation Reserve Program (GCCRP) (Planning & Implementation) - Alabama

The Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration Council (Council) is entering an interagency agreement under the RESTORE Council Selected Restoration Component with the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Natural Resources Conservation Service (Alabama office) for a total amount of $1,500,00 for the Gulf Coast Conservation Reserve Program (GCCRP) (Planning and Implementation). USDA will complete site specific conservation planning, engineering design, environmental evaluations, and conservation practice (best management practices) implementation on agricultural and forested lands in two coastal Alabama Counties. This program will reduce the discharge of sediments and pollutants from agricultural operations and associated critically eroding areas that drain to the Mobile Bay, Mississippi Sound, Bon Secour Bay and Perdido Bay. USDA and partners will work with landowners to implement conservation practices to  restore habitat, stabilize eroding areas, improve infiltration and reduce pollutants (primarily sediment) in runoff.
