On-Farm Climate Action Fund Information Session
Wednesday July 27, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The Ontario Soil and Crop Improvement Association (OSCIA) is excited to be delivering the new On-Farm Climate Action Fund (OFCAF) to Ontario farmers.
Farmers who are interested in learning more about the program can participate in a virtual information session co-hosted by OSCIA and EFAO. The first half of this session will provide an overview of the program, with time for questions. The second half will walk through the application process in detail. You’re invited to participate in as much of the info session as you would like to attend.
OSCIA is also hosting several other virtual and in-person Farmer Information Sessions in July.
Program information, including the new program guide can be found at: Ontario On-Farm Climate Action Fund | OSCIA (ontariosoilcrop.org)
Cost-share is available at 65% of approved project costs (costs must have been incurred on or after February 15, 2022). The intake will open to begin receiving applications on August 3, 2022 and will close at 11:59 PM ET on August 17, 2022.
Practices that will be supported under the program include in-field nitrogen management, cover cropping practices, and establishing or expanding rotational grazing systems:
- Planting new acres of cover crops, or leaving a cover crop over winter where it has always been terminated in the fall
- Setting up permanent perimeter and cross-fencing, to establish new rotational grazing systems (fencing for silvopasture system can be an eligible expense)
- Trying nitrogen stabilizers or in-field biological inoculants for the first time
