What do we mean by cost share programs or state cost share?

The goal:

  • get the right projects out on the land

  • in the right place

  • for the right reason


YOU are our provider. You provide the lawn, field, pasture or other canvas for great conservation work to happen!

OUR JOB is to figure out how to make the projects, practices and programs work for YOU. We rely on new technologies, community-based plans, and YOUR long-time knowledge of YOUR land to know what projects apply and where to put them.


Let's get going on implementing projects today! When we do, we will start with your interests for the field or your operation and try to find the best program to fit your needs. We have cost share, financing, incentives and options.  We can simply provide advice or connect you with the best resource for information and funding.

Contact the SWCD Staff for more info today!
