NYS Soil & Water Conservation Committee Announces Tier 4 Cost-Share Track
N.Y., June 21, 2021 – The New York State Soil & Water Conservation Committee (SWCC) has announced funding to advance Conservation District’s agricultural conservation goals outlined in their AEM Strategic Plan.
All farms with an AEM Tier 3 Plan or equivalent are eligible for this funding. The funding from the SWCC through AEM seeks to implement farm-specific, priority BMP systems. All BMP systems in the Agricultural Best Management Practices System Catalogue are eligible.
AEM is a voluntary, incentive-based program that helps farmers make common sense, cost-effective and science-based decisions to help meet business objectives while protecting and conserving the State’s natural resources. Farmers work with local AEM resources professionals to develop comprehensive farm plans using a tiered process.
AEM uses a five-tier voluntary approach to:
(1) keep track of current activities and potential environmental concerns
(2) assess existing stewardship and environmental concerns
(3) develop farm-specific conservation plans
(4) implement the best management practices identified in the plan
(5) update plans and conservation practices over time.
To apply for funding through the AEM program, interested farmers and landowners should contact the Monroe County Soil & Water Conservation District (contact info listed below).
