Agricultural Management Assistance (AMA) Program Sign Up
April 15 - May 14Free
Through AMA, financial assistance is available for eligible producers to implement conservation practices such as high tunnels, micro-irrigation and other specific irrigation and water related practices. Through a collaboration with the USDA Risk Management Agency (RMA), the two agencies will use NRCS experience in providing technical and financial assistance to distribute these funds using NRCS conservation program contracts.
This AMA sign-up opportunity in Vermont will prioritize funding opportunities for historically underserved groups, such as new and beginning farmers, socially disadvantaged farmers, and veteran farmers. These producers are eligible for up to 90% payment rates based on NRCS practice scenarios. Contact your local NRCS office prior to the May 14 deadline.
If you’re hosting an event or offering a grant related to agriculture and water quality, soil health, climate change, or the environment, you’re welcome to add it to our calendar.
