How does the approval process work?
- Initial Site Visit – A staff member will meet the landowner or operator on the property to discuss property needs and landowner goals.
- Initial Plan Map and Cost Estimate – A staff member will create a project proposal with an associated cost estimate for the project based on what was discussed at the initial site visit and send to the landowner or operator.
- If the landowner or operator would like to apply for funding they need to fill out and submit an application before beginning any work.
- Once TJSWCD receives the application the project is submitted to the Board of Directors for consideration at TJSWCD monthly board meeting. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis (except for Cover Crop applications) and will be considered for funding at the following monthly board meeting. Projects are approved based on funds available and the projects benefit to water quality.
- Once approved construction or planting can begin once TJSWCD staff finalize designs and meet with any contractors.
- Payment is made once work is completed and inspected by staff.
