Cost-sharing with landowners interested in making conservation improvements to their land is a significant aspect of NRD operations. While Nebraska's NRDs share the same goals under state statute, programs offered result from local needs and are administered to address local issues. Programs vary from one NRD to another. Additional LPSNRD programs addressing education and ground water preservation are detailed at the links above.
