Prevent Plant Cover Crop Funding Available

See below for information applying for funding for cover crops

The Carroll, Tippecanoe and Howard County Soil and Water Conservation Districts (SWCD) in partnership with the Deer Creek-Sugar Creek Watershed Project announces the availability of funding from the Indiana Department of Environmental Management’s Section 319 program and our local partners to directly enhance Little Deer Creek and Sugar Creek in Carroll, Howard and Tippecanoe Counties.  The grant will provide funding for agricultural producers within the target drainages of Little Deer Creek (Carroll and Howard Counties) and Sugar Creek (Carroll and Tippecanoe Counties) to improve water quality on their property through cover crop planting. Prevent plant cover crop funding is available on an as-needed basis. To receive funding, projects must meet three criteria:

  • 1) Be located within the target area (mapped in green on the enclosed figure);
  • 2) Consist of cover crop planting which follows NRCS technical specifications for prevent planting; and
  • 3) Be pre-approved by project’s technical committees and the Indiana Department of Environmental Management.

Prevent plant cover crop applications will be reviewed as applications are received. The next round of regular applications for any other project type are due August 1st.

To learn more about the project, view details of the qualifications and/or to apply for cost-share funding, visit www.dcscwatershed.org/cost-share or contact your local soil and water conservation district.
