Have you renewed your Environmental Farm Plan (EFP)?
The provincial government announced in December that in order to apply for growing forward/CAP agricultural cost share funding, all Environmental Farm Plans (EFP’s) over 10 years old must be renewed. The new requirement becomes effective is April 1, 2018 which will be shortly after the time funding becomes available.
Effective April 1, 2018, producers will need to have an environmental farm plan (EFP) completion letter dated within the last 10 years to be considered current and eligible for cost-share funding with the Environmental Sustainability and Climate Change programs of the Canadian Agriculture Partnership (CAP), formerly known as Growing Forward 2. For more information, check out the Alberta EFP website at http://www.albertaefp.com/…/alberta-efp-instituting-renewal…, or contact Ryan Hallett at the County of Stettler office at 403-742-4441.
Don't miss this important deadline or you will not be eligible for growing forward/CAP cost share funding.
