COVER CROP SIGNUP

CHANGES TO COST-SHARE GUIDELINES

Per the 2016 Cost Share Manual: 


SL-6 practices will now be reimbursed at 80%. Participants will be responsible for paying 20%. There will be a $70,000 cap for cost-share. Multiple SL-6s may be funded, within the $70,000 cap. For example, a participant could have two $30,000 SL-6s within the same program year, because the total cost is still less than $70,000. Participants who have reached the $70,000 may not receive cost-share funds for any other practice in the same program year. Participants who signed up BEFORE June 30, 2015 will still receive 100% reimbursement. Participants MUST begin construction or negotiate a signed contract with a contractor within 90 days of approval for cost-share payment.
