Grants of $750 per category to Wyoming organic farms, ranches, and handlers to reimburse expenses associated with acquiring organic certification or recertification. Funding may reimburse expenses incurred from certification by an accredited organization, such as certification fees, inspector fees, and organic royalty fees paid to the certifier.

Financial awards will be reimbursed only after the application is approved and the completed reimbursement form is submitted. Producers may receive 75% of their organic certification costs, not to exceed $750 per category of certification. For example, an operation that is certified for crops, livestock, wild crops and handler (i.e. processor) is eligible for a combined maximum of $3,000.

Up to $750 per category.

Certification and invoice payments must fall between October 1, 2015 through September 30, 2016.

Certified organic producers and handlers in Wyoming may apply. Organic certification must be verified prior to applying for reimbursement.

Wyoming farms/ranches or handlers are eligible to apply for reimbursement if they meet the following criteria:

-A Wyoming-based company or a Wyoming-based subsidiary company headquartered in Wyoming that is farming or ranching or processing organic products in Wyoming.

-A document that they have achieved organic certification or recertification with a USDA-accredited agency.

Ineligible expenditures are those not associated with actual certification costs, such as costs expended soliciting certification, international organic certification fees, registration/membership fees, postage, phone/internet fees, etc.

The Organic Certification Grant Program is a reimbursable grant. The applicant must provide their DUN’S number and pay all expenditures before the grant award may be disbursed.

Financial awards will be reimbursed only after the application is approved and the completed reimbursement form is submitted.

The deadline to submit the reimbursement application is November 1, 2016.
