As of July 2022, OEFFA has not yet received the funds that allow us to process cost share reimbursements for the State of Ohio.
If you are interested in applying for organic cost share now, please contact your County Farm Services Agency (FSA). You should be able to receive your full reimbursement (75%-up to $750 per scope) using a combination of the National Organic Certification Cost Share Program (NOCCSP) and the Organic and Transitional Education and Certification Program (OTECP).
Or check back here for information once OEFFA is able to accept applications under the NOCCSP. However, we anticipate that in 2022 we will only be authorized to administer the NOCCSP, which provides you with 50% (up to $500) per certification scope. Thus, we encourage you to utilize FSA so you can receive the maximum reimbursement.
