Agricultural Plan Reimbursement Program 2017-2021
The Agricultural Plan Reimbursement Program provided nearly $2.4 million to farmers across Pennsylvania's portion of the Bay watershed to cost share their Nutrient and Manure Management and Agricultural Erosion and Sediment Control Plans. These plans include site-specific best management practices that increase farm sustainability and improve local water quality. Pennsylvania state regulations require the development and implementation of these plans, and compliance with the regulations is a key component to meeting our collective Chesapeake Bay Watershed goals.
More than 3,200 plans covering almost 515,000 acres have been cost-shared through this funding program.
