UGRA's Water Enhancement Cost Share Program
UGRA's cost share program provides additional reimbursement to landowners enrolled in USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) or Texas State Soil and Water Conservation Board (TSSWCB) brush management programs. Landowners in the Guadalupe River watershed in Kerr County can receive 25% of the amount reimbursed by NRCS or TSSWCB once they have completed brush management activities.
