The state Department of Agriculture has $13 million in tax credits available to Pennsylvania farmers for measures to improve soil and water quality. Tax credits available through the Resource Enhancement and Protection (REAP) program may be combined with other state programs.
Applications are being accepted from agricultural producers who implement best management practices or purchase equipment to reduce nutrient and sediment runoff, enhancing soil and improving the quality of Pennsylvania’s waterways. Examples of funded projects include no-till planting and precision ag equipment, waste storage facilities, conservation plans, and nutrient management plans. Click here to learn more.
