RDAR announced it will be open to receiving applications for the On-Farm Climate Action Fund (OFCAF) program starting August 4, 2022.
The OFCAF is a cost-share funding program that supports farmers in adopting best management practices that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and store carbon, specifically for in-field nitrogen management, expanding cover cropping, and implementing rotational grazing practices.
This program helps producers adopt different practices by offsetting 85% of the cost. Alberta farmers and ranchers can apply for up to $75,000 in funding to implement practices related to nitrogen management, rotational grazing, and cover cropping.
Want to learn more about the program? RDAR is hosting a series of one-hour webinar sessions to help producers prepare to apply for funding.
