Back by popular demand, OSCIA has announced SARFIP funding for 2015. Funding is available for projects such as tree or grassland planting, improved stream crossings, erosion control measures, invasive species control, livestock fencing, alternative watering systems and much more. To be eligible, farmers must have an FBR, a Premises ID, and a recent EFP Action Plan on the farm property. Depending on location and the presence of species at risk, farmers could be eligible for funding from 40% (up to $5,000) to 80% (up to $20,000). It’s well worth the time to apply and if you haven’t updated your EFP in the last five years, it’s a good idea to do that too.
