Farm

Looking to address drainage issues within the Kankakee Watershed? We are pleased to offer financial assistance for the establishment of perennial plantings or cover crops in farm fields, along stream banks, or in low lying areas to improve water infiltration. Cover crops will be reimbursed at $20 per acre. Perennial plantings pay $250 per acre per year for installation and maintenance for up to 3 years. This cost-share program is made available by Clean Water Indiana grant funds. Applicants will be funded until the SWCD’s allotted money runs out. Receipts and/or proof of maintenance will be required. Technical assistance will be provided. Please fill out the application HERE and email it to nmessacar@laporteco.in.gov or mail it to LaPorte SWCD, 2857 W State Road 2 Ste B, La Porte, Indiana 46350.
