Vermont Agricultural Clean Water Initiative Program

The application deadline is January 31, 2022.
There is $3 million available through the Agricultural Clean Water Initiative Program (Ag-CWIP) grant opportunity to local and regional partners for the reduction of agricultural nutrient runoff throughout the State of Vermont. The Vermont Agency of Agriculture, Food and Markets (VAAFM) Water Quality Division is requesting proposals from businesses, organizations, or individuals to work with farms to support the improvement of water quality across the state of Vermont through education and outreach, technical assistance, organizational capacity development, and conservation practice surveys. There are two priority outcomes: Regulatory Compliance and Agricultural Non-Point Source Pollution Reduction, and Economic and Environmental Viability on Vermont Farms.
