While county Soil and Water Conservation Districts are currently emphasizing opportunities to sign up for cost-share programs, several of them are available year-round. Rayanna Hopper, Randolph County district manager, explains the process for signing up for one of the more popular cost-share programs, Grazing Management.
Hopper encourages producers to set up an appointment to complete the signup process.
Signups are also underway for cost-share grants for Animal Waste Management, Sensitive Areas, and Woodland Erosion. Hopper advises farmers to contact their local soil and water conservation district office for more information, including deadlines or programs that may vary from county to county.
