COSTSHARE PROGRAMS

Cost-share is available for many projects involving the establishment of natives. It is available for undertakings from planting native pastures to creating wildlife habitat. To pursue this, contact your local government offices such as the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) or the state wildlife agency such as the Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC). Also, some organizations such as the Missouri Prairie Foundation offer grants for native plant projects.
Each state and each government entity often has unique mixes for cost-share programs. Listed below are the common cost-share mixes in Missouri; if your mix is not on the list or you are planting in another state, give us a call as we also carry many other mixes and create custom blends.
