KDA Announces Riparian Quality Enhancement Initiative

The Kansas Department of Agriculture’s Division of Conservation announces updates to the Riparian Quality Enhancement Initiative (RQEI) to provide financial assistance for the enhancement of riparian areas, the vegetation and habitats along rivers and streams. This initiative is open to all counties located in the Kansas Association for Conservation District Areas III, IV and V. 

This initiative will support practices that serve to increase, enhance and protect riparian areas and provide the benefits of decreased sedimentation, improved water quality and quantity, and enhanced wildlife habitat. Practices will be eligible for 80 percent cost share, up to an annual landowner limit of $10,000; funding will be through the Riparian and Wetland Protection Program.

Applications are available at Conservation District offices, and interested producers should complete the application in consultation with their local Conservation District and the Kansas Forest Service. Applications for the RQEI will be due by April 30 and then they will reopen on July 1.

For a full list of practices that can be included in the RQEI initiative, a map of the targeted watersheds, and additional program guidance, along with a link to contact information for Kansas Conservation Districts, go to For more information about the RQEI, contact Tim McCoy at the KDA Division of Conservation, 785-564-6624 or [email protected].
