Forestry Best Management Practices
Logging operations in the State of Indiana are eligible to apply for cost-share dollars that will help defray the expense of BMP installations on harvest sites, depending on the location and timing of the harvest. Limitations are based on specific grant parameters and available dollars. The available cost share on each harvest operation is 75% of the actual cost of implementing the BMP’s on the operation, not to exceed $650.00.
Eligible cost-share expenses include:
- man-hours (planning, layout, construction)
- equipment hours
- supplies (mulch, seed, stone, culverts, etc)
- equipment rental (timber bridge)
