The Vermont Agency of Agriculture, Food & Markets (VAAFM) is accepting applications for at least $1 million in grant funding associated with the Ag Clean Water Initiative Program (Ag-CWIP). The program will provide new opportunities for farmers and partner organizations to undertake projects that will achieve reductions in nutrient runoff from agricultural lands, with a focus on projects which reduce phosphorus losses in priority watersheds. VAAFM is requesting agricultural water quality program proposals that address the following priority outcomes to improve water quality in Vermont: regulatory compliance with the RAPs and agricultural non-point source pollution reduction; and economic and environmental viability on Vermont farms. Eligible applicants include farmers, non-profit organizations, educational institutions, and local government entities.
Applications are due by January 10, 2018.
