USDA National Organic Certification Cost Share Program

If you are a certified organic farmer, handler, or processor, remember you are eligible to participate in the National Organic Certification Cost Share Program. This program provides a rebate of 75% of your certification costs and up to a maximum of $750 per scope (crops, livestock, wild crops, and handling), so the rebate could be even higher. The USDA allocates cost share funds to state agencies, usually state departments of agriculture, which then administer the programs and provide reimbursements. To learn more, click here.
