The Nature Conservancy's Pay for Performance Program
The Blue Water Conservation District hosts a grant from the Nature Conservancy to carry out a Saginaw Bay Wide Pay for Performance program, that allows us to do a simple contract with farmers based on environmental outcomes and sediment reduction.
For more information about this program and how it works, contact our technician Megan at: 810.824.6253 or via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
The Pay for Performance program cost shares on sediment reduction practices, and pays $150 per ton of sediment reduced on your farm, based on the MSU Institute of Water Research's HIT tool. Contact our Technician Megan to see if your farm qualifies and how much the program could save you!
