We will have an advertising period and then we will take applications for two weeks.

 kentucky state cost-share program


The Kentucky State-Cost Share Program was developed to assist farmers and landowners in protecting soil and water resources. This program also allows the applicant to implement their water quality plan as well as addressing current natural resource issues and problems associated with their current operation.  State Cost Share sign-ups are continuous (year-round) and are ranked once a year. Stop by our office anytime to get your application in.

The Conservation District also assists the U.S.D.A. Natural Resources Conservation Services staff in implementing federally-funded programs. These include: Environmental Quality Incentive Program (EQIP), Wildlife Habitat Incentive Program (WHIP), Conservation Reserve Program & Conservation Reserve Enhancement Program (CRP & CREP), Wetland Reserve Program (WRP), and Conservation Stewardship Program (CSP). For more information on these programs and what they have to offer, please contact our office. 
 

 dead animal removal program


With a high number of livestock in the state of Kentucky and mortality rates anywhere from 3 to 5 percent, proper disposal of animal carcasses is essential to prevent groundwater pollution, control the spread of disease, and discourage predators from attacking farm animals. The Conservation District implements a Dead Animal Removal Program funded through the Warren County Division of Stormwater Management.  We pay a $40 flat rate for each animal if our regulations are met for disposal. For more information or to sign up, come by our office.
