Cost Share Program Funds Available Now

Do you have a conservation project in mind for your property?  Would it benefit water quality or wildlife habitat?  If so, Underwood Conservation District may be able to help you find funding for your project. UCD is currently seeking landowners with thoughtful stewardship project ideas and preliminary plans.

The Conservation Practice Cost-Share Program is an incentive program intended to defray landowner costs for implementing conservation practices. Reimbursement funding for up to 75% of project costs is available from the Washington State Conservation Commission, once your project is approved by the UCD Board of Supervisors.

Projects ideas might include streambank plantings, invasive species removal, native pollinator hedgerows, livestock use exclusion, animal waste composting facilities, roof runoff management, soil health or erosion control, wildlife habitat enhancement, or wildfire fuels reduction. Both preventative practices and corrective practices are eligible.  Projects that reduce mud, storm water, nutrients and other pollutants from reaching streams and waterways are encouraged.

To learn more please contact Carly with your project ideas at 509-493-1936 or carly@ucdwa.org. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis and will be reviewed by District staff and presented to the Board of Supervisors, which meet the third Tuesday of every month.
