Organic Certification Cost-Share Program

Applications are due by November 1, 2021.
Organic producers and handlers can now apply for USDA Organic Certification Cost-Share Program funds to assist with the cost of receiving or maintaining organic certification. This program provides cost-share assistance to producers and handlers of agricultural products for the costs of obtaining or maintaining organic certification under the USDA’s National Organic Program. For 2021, OCCSP will reimburse 50% of a certified operation’s allowable certification costs, up to a maximum of $500 for each category of certification.
