Special Cover Crop Funding is targeted for the Chesapeake Bay Watershed in Delaware

This effort focuses on improving water quality and soil health by targeting additional financial assistance in the watershed for Environmental Quality Incentive Program (EQIP) eligible farmers.  The additional acres planted will help Delaware meet its Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDL) and achieve the goals and milestones of the Chesapeake Bay Watershed Implementation Plan (WIP) through the uptake of excess nutrients and improved soil health.
