Agricultural Management Assistance Program and Grants

The Department of Agriculture sponsored the Agricultural Management Assistance Program that provides financial assistance to producers in order to improve the water management and irrigation structures on their private lands. These grants are given in order to reduce soil erosion, manage pests, plant trees for windbreaks, and to help them in the transition to organic farming through various conservation practices. Up to 75 percent of the incurred costs are covered by the grants.
