Pennsylvania Resource Enhancement and Protection Tax Credits

This funding is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Pennsylvania farmers are eligible for $13 million in Resource Enhancement and Protection Tax Credits for measures to improve soil and water quality. Farmers may receive up to $250,000 in any seven-year period. Examples of funded projects include no-till planting and precision ag equipment, waste storage facilities, conservation plans, Nutrient Management Plans. Measures that limit run-off from high animal-traffic areas like barnyards, as well as cover crops and riparian stream buffers that prevent erosion and keep nutrients out of streams are also common REAP-eligible practices. Farmers may receive REAP tax credits of 50 to 75% of the project’s eligible out-of-pocket costs.
