CKCD Cost-Share Program

Do you have a conservation project in mind for your property? Would it benefit water quality or decrease wildfire risk? If so, Central Klickitat Conservation District may be able to provide technical assistance and even cost-share. Possible projects include streambank stabilization, riparian plantings, livestock exclusion fencing, barn roof runoff management, or wildfire fuels reduction.

The cost-share program is an incentive program intended to defray landowner costs for implementing conservation practices. Reimbursement funding for up to 75% of project costs (depending on the funding source) may be available, once your project is approved by the District’s Board of Supervisors. Contact Kent Apostol or call (509) 773-5823 x 5 to discuss project ideas.
