|Species At Risk Farm Incentive Program is open for 2015 |
Species At Risk Farm Incentive Program (SARFIP) assists species at risk, but it is much more. You do not necessarily have to have species at risk on your farm to apply for funding assistance for environmental projects. From 40% to 80% and up to $20,000 is available for various environmental projects. Possible environmental projects include;
Eligible applications for SARFIP are approved on a first come - first served basis so don't delay.
- Fencing along sensitive wetlands and forest,
- Reforestation and shelter belts,
- Alternate watering systems,
- Invasive species removal (like Buckthorn)
- Improved stream crossings
- Erosion control structures like grass waterways and spill chutes.
- Cross fencing for rotational grazing systems.
Completion of the 3rd or 4th Edition Environmental Farm plan is required for SARFIP applications so see the workshop schedule on the OSCIA web site (www.ontariosoilcrop.org) to register for upcoming Environmental Farm Plan workshops. Obtain a copy of the Brochure from the OSCIA web site and look over the potential project funding and eligibility.
