NC Certified Organic Cost Share Program

Operations that have successfully received their initial USDA organic certification from a USDA-accredited certifying agent or have incurred and paid expenses related to the renewal of their USDA organic certification from a USDA-accredited certifying agent between October 1, 2019, and September 30, 2020, are eligible to receive reimbursements.
Certified organic operations can apply for cost-share assistance through the N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (NCDA&CS) or at any Farm Service Agency (FSA) county office. There is no difference in your eligibility or reimbursement amount; however, the paperwork may differ between agencies.
