The AgriWatershed Partnership is offering funding for land management BMP implementation on fields within 200 metres of a designated watercourse or wetland. For approved projects, eligible costs incurred (See Program Guidelines) will be rebated at a rate of 75% to a maximum of $30,000 per project per year.
The AWP BMP Support program will allocate funding on a “priority basis” rather than a first-come, first-served model. Project proposals will be evaluated and prioritized by their potential to improve the local ecosystem. Project review will be done by the AgriWatershed Partnership Technical Working Group.
Landowners/farmers applying for funding will be required to seek endorsement of the project from their local watershed coordinator. Watershed coordinators wishing to nominate a site for funding will be required to engage the landowner/farmer in the project proposal and obtain their signature on the initial Application Information Form. Applications will be accepted until 4:00 pm, Friday, February 26th, 2021.
