USDA Informational Session - Organic Certification Cost Share

USDA Informational Session - Organic Certification Cost Share

Thursday, April 28, 2016 - 10:00am to 12:00pm

The U.S. Department of Agriculture is hosting an information session and stakeholder workshop on the Organic Certification Cost Share Programs on April 28, 2016. The objective of the session is to share information on the current state of the program and discuss a proposal for improving the program, including the potential for Farm Service Agency involvement in program implementation. Currently, two organic certification cost share programs are available to assist certified organic operations in defraying the costs associated with organic certification. Organic operations may receive up to 75 percent of their certification costs, not to exceed $750. For more information on the programs, please visit the Agricultural Marketing Service's website.  OTA's Vice President of Government Affairs, Marni Karlin, will be attending the event. For more information, please contact Marni

Pre-registration is not required, but it will help USDA to estimate the number of attendees. The session is free and open to the public.
