The Missouri Department of Natural Resources' Soil and Water Districts Commission has developed the cost-share program to help farmers and landowners install erosion-control practices. Funds for the program come from the one-tenth-of-one-percent Parks, Soils and Water Sales Tax approved by voters.
The cost-share program is administered by local soil and water conservation districts.
Construction may begin only after approval of the SWCD board of supervisors. Violation will invalidate the contract and cost-share funds will not be approved.
It is the landowners responsibility for getting bids and hiring their own contractor. A contractors list is available at the office as a public service and constitutes no endorsement by USDA, NRCS or SWCD.
Eligibility includes having a conservation plan approved with the Natural Resources Conservation Service and having a Farm Service Agency farm number with the land assessed as agricultural.
In order to qualify, the soils present must either be eroding excessively, experiencing active gully erosion or exempt from the erosion requirements of the program. A determination will be made by NRCS.
Pasture seedings must be established for a minimum of five years and all other practices must not be removed, altered or modified under the life expectance of the project (10 years).
The practice is not complete until it meets NRCS specs. Landowners are responsible for making sure the the tenant knows it meets specs before planting takes place. If the contractor leaves the site prior to meeting specs, it is the landowner's responsibility for getting a contractor back to make the fixes prior to the termination date.
The landowner is responsible for paying 100 percent of all invoices related to the practice and turning in required documentation prior to their termination date.
Contract payments are done by direct deposit and all payments will be issued a 1099.
Cost-share is based on 75 percent of the state average cost per component approved on the contract and payments are made by complying with the extent completed of installed components approved on the contract.
