COST SHARE PROGRAMS

Our landowner cost share program is a way to assist members of the West Greeley Conservation District in implementing approved conservation practices on their land. Applications are accepted on an on-going basis. Funding is contingent on approval by the Board of Supervisors.

ELIGIBLE PRACTICES INCLUDE

Windbreak/Living Snow Fence

This cost share is designed to help tax payers establish windbreaks on their properties for conservation purposes.

Application

Cement Ditch Repair

Designed to repair cement ditches that are leaking water and not able to properly function. A lot of times cracked and broken down ditches leak a lot of irrigation water from the ditch. This cost share helps to conserve irrigation water.

OTHER COST SHARES

Seeding/Reseeding Program

WGCD offers seed drilling to small acreage landowners, 15 acres or less. This cost share is provided to landowners at an inexpensive price to get grass established on their property. We use a 5 ½ ft. wide no-till drill and a smaller tractor. This program is intended to plant native pasture grasses to reduce soil erosion.
