Conservation Assistance

Cost-share assistance is provided for conserving and protecting land and water resources throughout the county. Cost-share rates in most cases are 70% of total project cost.

Cost-share funds are provided by the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection for implementation of the Taylor County Land and Water Resource Management Plan.

Additional assistance for land and water conservation and protection may be available through NRCS and other programs.

Technical assistance is available by the Engineering Technician.
