Meetings will be held to explain the application process for H2Ohio funds and answer questions about the program’s conservation practices. H2Ohio funding is available to farmers in the Maumee River Watershed through Governor DeWine’s H2Ohio Initiative. A total of $30 million has been allocated to agriculture.
The Ohio Department of Agriculture (ODA) will host this series of meetings through local Soil and Water Conservation Districts. The Ohio Agriculture Conservation Initiative (OACI) will outline the new Farmer Certification Program and how it will work with H2Ohio.
Farmers in all 14 counties may attend any county meetings, and no registration is required.
