STATE COST SHARE PROGRAM
The State Cost Share Program is a viable source of funds that provide a financial incentive to landowners that wish to install conservation practices on their land. In addition to the State Cost Share Program, landowners have the opportunity to participate in various other cost-share or financial incentive programs. Individuals seeking financial or technical assistance will be informed of the Federal Environmental Quality Incentive Program and the State Revolving Loan Fund Program (also known as Ag BMP Loan Program). The SWCD and the NRCS (National Resource Conservation Service) provide technical assistance for the survey, design and installation of water quality practice.
STATE COST SHARE - WELL SEALING
State Cost Share funds are available to assist landowners with the cost of sealing unused wells. Funds are available for up to 50% of the cost or $300 whichever is less. Wells must be sealed by a licensed well sealer. Call our office to have your name put on the cost share list, bring us a copy of your paid bill to be reimbursed. It's that simple!
