The North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services is now accepting applications for the 2016-17 Organic Cost Share program.

Operations that have successfully received their initial USDA organic certification from a USDA-accredited certifying agent or have incurred and paid expenses related to the renewal of their USDA organic certification from a USDA-accredited certifying agent between October 1, 2016, and September 30, 2017, are eligible to receive reimbursements.

Certified organic operations can apply for Cost Share assistance through the NC Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (NCDA&CS) or at any Farm Service Agency (FSA) county office. There is no difference in your eligibility or reimbursement amount; however, the paperwork may differ between agencies.

If you choose to apply through NCDA&CS, please complete the application and W-9 form. Return both completed forms, along with copies of invoices from your certifier showing expenses invoiced and paid, and a copy of your certificate to me by October 6, 2017. You can scan and email the paperwork, fax or mail the completed paperwork.
