2018 Cost Share Program

August 2, 2018

The National Organic Certification Cost Share Program is now accepting farmer and processor applications – crops, wild crops, livestock and processing/handling – for reimbursement of 75 percent of your organic certification costs (up to $750 per scope of certification).

Reimbursements are made on a first-come, first-serve basis until all funds are dispersed.

Contact your local FSA office
The USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) provides organic certification financial assistance for organic producers and handlers through state departments of agriculture.

If you’d prefer to go through your state agency, check to see if there is a program. Otherwise, you’ll need to find your nearest Farm Service Agency office to submit your application.

You’ll need to complete the cost share application and have the right documentation (W-9, proof of certification, and an itemized invoice of certification expenses).

The maximum reimbursement is 75 percent (or up to $750) of certification costs per certification scope, including application fees, certification fees and inspection costs.
