GROW - Shallow Wetlands Incentive Program - NEW 

Landowners who protect smaller wetlands may qualify for annual payments. Those protected areas may still be cultivated during dry years. Program Highlights:

  • 10 - year agreements
  • Annual payments based on property value/cash rental rates 
  • Only intact Class 1 & 2 wetlands are eligible
  • Class 1 & 2 wetlands typically only hold surface water for only a short period of time after snowmelt in early to late spring. Also during heavy rainfall events
  • This program can be combined with wetland restoration ditch plugging of any type of wetland
