DEP: Money Still Available To Reimburse Farmers For Doing Farm Conservation Plans Until April 1 In 43 Counties

On February 27, the Department of Environmental Protection said over $620,000 is still available to reimburse Pennsylvania farmers in the 43 counties that make up the Pennsylvania portion of the Chesapeake Bay Watershed for developing plans to help improve local water quality.
But you need to act soon: the deadline to register for reimbursement is April 1. You'll be re-paid the cost of hiring a technical expert to develop plans after January 1, 2017, for manure management, nutrient management, or erosion and sediment control.
You can submit more than one plan for reimbursement, up to a max of $6,000. Small farmers are especially encouraged to participate. So far, farmers have registered over 600 plans for almost $530,000 in reimbursement.
