The Jefferson County Conservation District has announced that funds are available for
cost-share assistance on selected conservation practices benefiting soil and water conservation. The State of Oklahoma has provided limited funds to our conservation district to help landowners implement measures that protect soil and water resources.
“The great advantage of the Conservation Cost-Share Program for Oklahoma is that it is
a locally-led program,” said Gary Carter, chairman of the Jefferson County Conservation District. “Our conservation district, with input from local residents and agricultural producers, selects which of the available conservation practices to provide assistance on.”
Conservation practices available for cost-share assistance through the Jefferson County Conservation District include the following: Pond Construction, Grass Planting and Brush Control in addition to various other conservation practices. The percentage of cost-share varies according to the conservation practice to be constructed.
The district will be accepting applications from February 28, 2018 through April 13, 2018. For more information contact the Jefferson County Conservation District, (580) 228-2760 or come by the district office located at 1431 E G Avenue in Waurika. Office hours are weekdays 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
