Cost-share program

2023 Application is closed.

The cost-share program is designed to be inclusive to help every member meet their soil and water conservation goals. The practices below have been shown to provide a suite of benefits, including but not limited to, reducing soil erosion by wind and water, limiting nutrient losses via leaching, runoff, or other loss pathways, and improving soil health.

To participate, please indicate which program(s) you would like to enroll in and the number of acres you are enrolling. Receipts are required for some programs. DCF’s cost share program is intended to be a learning opportunity for members, so we ask that members be willing to share lessons learned from trying a new practice with the group. Applicants may apply for multiple programs on different acres.

Final cost-share payments are dependent on available funds and will be distributed no later than the first quarter of 2024. If you are not yet a DCF member, please fill out the membership form (available at and pay the $50 membership dues.
