The Mason-Lake Conservation District is offering cost share to farms in Mason, Manistee, and Western Lake Counties to help assist with achieving MAEAP verification. The four systems that farms can be MAEAP verified in include Farmstead, Cropping, Livestock, and Forest, Wetland, and Habitat. With these systems, there are certain management practices that farms need to implement to be MAEAP verified. Our cost share program is available to help farms achieve these practices, and farms that are one or two practices away from MAEAP verification are eligible to apply. All MAEAP projects approved for cost share will receive a 50% reimbursement, up to a maximum of $500 per producer.
