A cost-share program has been developed, and applications are now being accepted for our project. Best management practices such as cover crops, forage and biomass planting, critical area planting, critical area planting, grassed waterways, filter strips, fencing, and others that address water quality concerns, are eligible for cost-share. Landowners will be provided technical assistance to facilitate practice implementation through farm visits, site and project design, and practice selection.
