KY State Cost Share
Woodford County Conservation District will be accepting requests for cost-share funding under the Kentucky Soil and Water Quality Cost Share Program through October 23rd, 2023 to be considered for 2024.
This program was created to assist agricultural operations in protecting the soil and water resources of Kentucky. This program allows funds to be administered through conservation districts with priority given to animal waste-related problems.
Funding for practices will be approved by the Kentucky Soil and Water Conservation Commission as funds are available. Approved applicants are reimbursed at a 75% cost share rate for installing practices up to the maximum amount ($20,000.00) allowed per applicant per year. Applications may be requested at any time during the year and are ranked annually.
Stop by the office at 180 Beasley Road from 7:00 am – 4:30 pm Monday - Friday and speak with Vivian or Jared. Call 859-873-4941 Ext. 3. for more information.
