O-M-G Grassland Improvement Project
Soil Conservation Districts from Oliver, Morton, and Grant counties received a $900,000 grant for the purpose of installing grassland improvement practices. Funding is available at a 60% rate to producers in those counties. Pasture cross-fencing, water developments, and grass plantings are an example of the practices that can receive cost-share. The funding was received in 2016 from the North Dakota Outdoor Heritage Fund (OHF). The OHF was established in 2013 to provide grants that enhance conservation practices in our state. The OHF receives its funds from ND oil and gas tax revenue.
