NRCS FARM BILL PROGRAM

 

The NRCS Victorville Service Center boundaries comprise most of San Bernardino County including the mountains in the Mojave River watershed and the high desert extending east to the Arizona/Nevada borders. (The southwest corner of the County lies in the Redlands Service Center area.)

 

For FY19/20, the Victorville Field Office will have obligated 73 new contracts (38 currently in preapproved status).  Over $715 thousand dollars are committed for contracts in 2020.  In total, since 2011, the Victorville Field Office of NRCS has spent $11 million in EQIP contracts and $930 thousand in CSP contracts – making a significant partnership investment in conservation in San Bernardino County.  These contracts include agricultural practices such as seasonal high tunnels, water conservation, National Air Quality Initiative, and a variety of forestry practices in the San Bernardino Mountains.
