Ag Plan Reimbursement Program

PACD was awarded a $500,000 Growing Greener Grant from DEP to offer an Ag Plan Reimbursement Program for Conservation Districts from 2022-2024.

Timeline:

Plans eligible for reimbursement include:

  • Manure Management Plans and Agricultural Erosion and Sediment Control Plans (Ag E&S Plans)
  • Act 38 Nutrient Management Plans (required if the operation meets certain animal density and/or animal number thresholds) or NRCS 590 plans
  • Conservation Plans that are used in place of Ag E&S Plans (only if the Conservation Plans also meet the state requirements outlined in Chapter 102)

A 20% match will be required from the landowner/operator.

Education and outreach, office supplies, and time for data entry, reporting, and admin can be reimbursed up to 20% the amount of the total plan reimbursement.
