The Funding Is Available to Dairy Farm Families from Preserved Farms in Six Pennsylvania Counties
The Center for Dairy Excellence is working with the Pennsylvania Farmland Preservation Office to support this grant by providing dairy farms participating in the program the opportunity to also receive a $5,000 Transformation Team Grant to support planning and design work. The Transformation Team Grant allows dairy producers to establish a team to help plan and execute a major business transformation.
If best management practices are being installed, NRCS will write the conservation plans and assist with installation. To apply for the grant, landowners are required to complete and submit the application through their local NRCS office. Landowners must have control of their land for the duration of the contract and must have their farm registered in the FSA office.
