What environmentally friendly ground cover can I use on a slope for a year or two while waiting for permanent landscaping?

I live in Richmond, Virginia. The sloped hill behind our cabin (about 8,000 square feet) was cleared to install a geothermal loop. Eventually, we want to landscape the space as a sustainable site using largely native plantings. In the meantime, we want to prevent erosion and keep the dust down. We don't live on the property yet, so we also don't want something that requires a lot of mowing or care, nor do we want to apply a lot of chemicals. Eventually, most of the area will probably be tilled over. What are our best choices for an environmentally sensitive ground cover that does not break the bank?
