The Ohio Livestock Coalition (OLC) recently announced that funding is available for Ohio organizations interested in hosting meetings for farmers and farm managers on water quality and nutrient management education.

"Water quality and nutrient management are predicted to be two of the top issues for Ohio agriculture in 2013,” said David White, OLC executive director. “The issue is far-reaching and affects all farmers, farm managers and anyone who buys, sells or manages manure or uses fertilizer. That’s why OLC created a funding mechanism to provide assistance to organizations seeking to educate farmers on these topics.”

To apply for funding, an intent form must be submitted to OLC at least 30 days prior to the scheduled meeting date. Applicants’ intent forms must demonstrate how the meeting will educate attendees on water quality and nutrient management issues, including:

OLC will reimburse up to $10/person attending, with a maximum total reimbursement of $500 for hosting an educational and informative water quality and nutrient management meeting. Following the meeting, funding recipients must submit a report form, provided by OLC, within 30 days to report the results of the event and how the funding was used.
