State Cost-Share Program

The SWCD administers and partners with other agencies to provide financial assistance to landowners for many different types of projects.  Landowners may receive up to 90% funding depending on the project, location, and funding source.  Examples of projects that can receive assistance include cover crop plantings, grassed waterways, water and sediment control structures, feedlot fixes, and sealing unused wells.  Low interest loans are also available in partnership with the Minnesota Department of Agriculture through the AgBMP Loan Program for manure handling equipment, conservation tillage equipment, septic replacements and much more.
