As of today (11/15), Congress has yet to pass the new Farm Bill. NRCS has been advised that there will be a General EQIP sign-up soon, and NRCS staff will be advertising that as soon as they have more guidance.
If you have received an EQIP application letter recently, do not be alarmed. If you had an application that was not funded in 2018, it will automatically roll over to Fiscal Year 2019, if you don't take any action. Once the ranking deadline is announced, NRCS will be reviewing old applications and contacting producers to see if they want to make any changes to their old application.
