National Organic Certification Cost-Share Program

 

The Organic Certification Cost Share Program is part of the Agricultural Act of 2014 (Farm Bill).  The program is intended to assist organic producers and handlers by offsetting costs associated with organic certification. 
  
Applicants are eligible for 75% reimbursement of eligible certification related costs paid between October 1, 2014-September 30, 2015.  Cost share is limited to $750/per scope.  There are four certification scopes:  crops, wild crops, livestock and processing/handling.    

To apply
 Submit a complete application which includes:

  • Application
  • W9 Form--Request for Taxpayer Identification Number and Certification if you did not receive cost-share last year or your information has changed.
  • If you are certified with:  CCOF, ICS, IDALS, MOSA, NICS, OneCert Inc., or QCS, your certifier agreed to provide the necessary documentation to support your application.  You only need to complete and submit the application and W9. (if applicable, see instructions)
  • If your certifier IS NOT listed above, you will need to submit:  Application, W9 (if applicable), receipts from certifier of eligible fees paid between October 1, 2014-September 30, 2015 for organic certification, copy of most recent organic certificate.
