State-Funded Cost-Share Program
The Conservation Cost Share Program provides financial assistance, through cost-share payments to landowners to apply soil and water conservation practices on the land. The purpose of this program is to improve water quality and control soil erosion across the state.
We are currently waiting for information on Cost-Share for the upcoming year. Please check back soon.
TCCD Cost-Share Program
TCCD’s Cost-Share Program began in 1999. Practices approved for Tulsa County by the Board of Directors include:
Critical Area Treatment: Planting vegetation on highly-erodible or critically-erodible areas to stabilize soil, and reduce damage from sediment and runoff downstream.
Pasture Planting and Nutrient Management: Establishing native or introduced forage species (plants) to reduce soil erosion by wind and/or water.
Pond Construction: To maintain or improve water quality
Freeze-Proof Tank and Fence: Installation of tank or trough, with needed devices for water and waste water disposal to provide drinking water for livestock at selected locations that will protect vegetative cover through proper distribution of grazing, or through better grassland management for erosion control. Also used to reduce or eliminate the need for livestock to be in streams, reducing livestock waste.
Brush Management: Removal, reduction, or manipulation of non-herbaceous plants such as eastern red cedar, Ashe juniper, redberry juniper, oneseed juniper, and rocky mountain red cedar.
Nutrient Management: Managing the amount, form, placement, and timing of applications of plant nutrients.
Range Planting: Establishing adapted plants by seeding on native grazing land to prevent excessive soil and water loss and improve water quality.
Watering Facility: A trough or tank, with needed devices for water control and water disposal installed to provide drinking water for livestock.
Filter Strip: A strip or area of herbaceous vegetation situated between cropland, grazing land, or dised land (including forestland) and environmentally sensitive areas.
Please note that each Cost-Share Program Year is limited by the amount of funds available.
