APPENDIX TO FORM CCC-1200
ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY INCENTIVES PROGRAM CONTRACT
ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS FOR ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY INCENTIVES
By signing the EQIP contract, the participant certifies that such participant will control the land
subject to the contract for the terms of the contract period and shall, upon demand, provide
evidence to CCC demonstrating that such participant will control the land for that period.
A participant shall not be eligible for cost-share or incentive payments on practices on eligible
land if the participant receives or has received cost-share payments or other benefits for the same
practice on the land under the Conservation Reserve Program (7 CFR part 1410), Wetlands
Reserve Program (7 CFR parts 703, 620, or 1467) or Environmental Quality Incentives Program
(7 CFR part1466).
Land otherwise eligible for the EQIP shall not be eligible if the land is subject to a deed or other
restriction prohibiting the application of the conservation plan and associated practices or where
a benefit has or will be obtained from a Federal agency in return for the participant's agreement
not to implement the conservation plan and associated practices on the land during the same time
as the land would be enrolled in the EQIP. By applying for the EQIP contract, the participant
certifies as a condition for payment that no such restrictions apply to the subject land.
