District Funding & Technical Assistance

Location
The Wilson County Soil and Water Conservation District Office is located in the Wilson County Agricultural Center building at 1806 Goldsboro Street SW in Wilson.

The District also shares the office with the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), which furnishes technical assistance to the District, other government agencies, landowners, homeowners, and tenants of Wilson County free of charge.

Funds
The Wilson County Soil and Water Conservation District is allocated administrative funds through the budget of Wilson County Board of Commissioners. The office space and utilities are provided by the County.

A portion of these funds are matched by the State of North Carolina through the Division of Soil and Water Conservation. Funds can be raised through donations and special projects. The District has four full-time employees. Half of the Cost Share Technician’s salary is funded by the NC Cost Share Program.
