How ACSP Works
The NC Agriculture Cost Share Program is effectively improving the state’s resources through the grassroots efforts of Wayne Soil & Water Conservation District.

Wayne Soil and Water works with agricultural landowners and renters to:
  • Design and oversee installation of Best management Practices
  • Develop and approve individual conservation plans
  • Identify Best Management Practices suited to your operation
  • Provide Technical assistance to ensure proper operation and maintenance
Landowners and renters of existing agricultural operations producing for more than three years are eligible to participate

How To Apply
Visit the Wayne County Soil and Water Conservation office where technicians will help you submit an application and schedule a field visit to your agriculture operation that has the resource concern. The application will then be ranked based on resource concerns identified in the county.

Applicants can be reimbursed for a percentage of a predetermined average cost for each installed Best Management Practice. Applicants are responsible for remaining percentage of the costs, which may include labor.

Some restrictions may apply depending on the type of operation, best Management Practice, or a relevant Soil & Water Conservation Commission Policy.

What To Bring
  • Banking information (Void Check)
  • Farm Service Agency (FSA) maps of the agriculture operation that has the resource concern
  • Tax ID exemption card or Schedule F form
