Grants to New York soil and water conservation districts and groups of conservation districts for the reduction and prevention of nonpoint source pollution in state watersheds. Funding is intended to support planning activities and projects to implement agricultural best management practice systems.
The New York State Soil and Water Conservation Committee (State Committee) invites Soil and Water Conservation Districts, or groups of Districts acting jointly, to submit proposals for funding under the Agricultural Nonpoint Source Abatement and Control Program. Program funds are available for nonpoint source abatement and control projects that plan (AEM Tier III) or implement (AEM Tier IV) Agricultural Best Management Practice Systems on New York State farms. All projects must consist of activities that will reduce, abate, control, or prevent nonpoint source pollution originating from agricultural sources.
The goal of the Agricultural Nonpoint Source Abatement and Control Program is to reduce and or prevent the nonpoint source contribution from agricultural activities in watersheds across the state. The program utilizes the Agricultural Environmental Management (AEM) framework and provides cost-share funds through Soil and Water Conservation Districts for activities, plans and the implementation of Best Management Practices (BMPs) Systems.
