NRCS's Drought Resilience Improvement Project (D.R.I.P) Helps Producers Tackle Drought with Conservation


Producers in Colorado are facing one of the worst droughts in U.S. history. In 2012, over 50 percent of Colorado was in exceptional (D4) or extreme (D3) drought, and drought monitor indications show that this drought is continuing in 2013.

Producers are encouraged to visit with their local USDA Service Center for assistance with drought-related issues. Applications will be accepted on an ongoing basis but must be received by April 19, 2013, the ranking cut-off date for this year.
