North Carolina is now accepting applications for the organic cost share reimbursement program.

This year’s program will reimburse 75%, up to $750, of the costs incurred in obtaining organic certification for each category of certification. Expenses must have been incurred and paid between October 1, 2015 and September 30, 2016.

Requests will be filled on a first-come, first-serve basis. All applications must be complete and must include the application itself, an IRS W-9 form, a copy of your organic certificate and copies of invoices from your certifying agency.

The application and guidelines have not yet been posted to the NCDA website as of this writing, but the forms are available via e-mail from Cooperative Extension by requesting them from Richard Boylan at richard_boylan@ncsu.edu.

Applications are due December 1, 2016. If you have other questions about the program, you can contact your local Extension Agent or:
