Funding Available for Small Projects

UCD Conservation Cost Share Program

Do you have a conservation project in mind for your property? Will your plan benefit water quality, wildlife habitat or other natural resources? UCD is currently seeking landowners and occupiers with small conservation project ideas that will improve natural resource conditions and stewardship. Common projects include stream bank plantings, pollinator hedgerows, windbreak buffers, thinning, reforestation, noxious weed removal, livestock exclusion from streams, animal waste composting facilities, and mud management around barns. Many other projects are eligible as well.

APPLICATIONS are being accepted now and early applications are encouraged. Please write or call Carly Lemon at, or (509) 493-1936 to discuss your project idea.  As you develop your project, please use the UCD Cost Share Pre-Application.
