Agricultural Management Assistance (AMA) provides financial assistance to agricultural producers to voluntarily address issues such as water management, water quality, and erosion control by incorporating conservation into their farming operations. Producers may: construct or improve irrigation structures; or construct high tunnel structures.
For Fiscal Year 2017, Maine NRCS will again be offering financial assistance for irrigation systems and high tunnels through the AMA program.
Applications are taken on a continuous basis. Although the deadline for applications to be considered for 2017 funding was originally August 19, 2016, the application cut-off for 2017 funding consideration has been extended to November 18, 2016.
