Requests for Applications for the National Organic Certification Cost Share Program

Statement of Purpose:

Pursuant to Texas Agriculture Code, §12.002 and §18.002, the Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA) hereby requests applications for the National Organic Certification Cost Share Program (NOCCSP) designed to assist Texas producers with the cost of organic certification.

Program Authority:

The NOCCSP is authorized under section 10606(d) of the Farm Security and Rural Investment Act of 2002 (7 U.S.C. 6523(d)), as amended by section 10004(c) of the Agriculture Act of 2014P. L. 113-79).

Eligibility:

The applicant must be a Texas-based business that produces organic crops. Operations must possess current USDA organic certification to be eligible to receive reimbursements. This means operations either must have successfully received their initial USDA organic certification from a USDA-accredited certifying agent, or must have incurred expenses related to the renewal of their USDA organic certification from a USDA-accredited certifying agent between October 1, 2016, and September 30, 2017. Operations with suspended, revoked, or withdrawn certifications are ineligible for cost share reimbursement. The applicable NOP regulations and resources for certification are available on the NOP website at www.ams.usda.gov/nop.

Organic operations, certified to the scopes of crops, wild crops, and/or livestock; and/or handlers are eligible to participate in the NOCCSP.

WARNING: The Farm Service Agency (FSA) is also offering this National Organic Certification Cost Share Program (NOCCSP). Eligible entities described above may only receive ONE cost-share per organic certificate or category of certification from TDA or FSA, not both. TDA will work with FSA to ensure duplicate awards are not made. If a duplicate award is made, FSA will be the agency to seek collections. Collections may include repayment from the applicant, a reduction in other FSA payments, or a reduction in federal tax payments.

Funding Parameters:

Applications must be complete and have all required documentation to be considered. Applications missing documentation or otherwise deemed incomplete will not be considered for funding until sufficient information has been received by TDA. Information not received by the application deadline will not be considered.

Payments are limited to 75% (seventy-five percent) of an individual producer's certification costs, up to a maximum of $750 (seven hundred and fifty dollars) per certificate or category of certification, per year. Eligible operations may receive one reimbursement per year per certificate or certification scope (if one certificate includes multiple scope certifications). Each certificate may be reimbursed separately. Likewise, each category of certification may be reimbursed separately.

Application Requirements and Deadline:

Applications will be accepted beginning May 2017, and must be submitted on the form provided by TDA. The application (GTBD-167) is available on TDA's website at TexasAgriculture.gov, or available upon request from TDA by calling (512) 463-4406.

The application packet must be received by TDA before close of business (5:00 p.m. CT) on October 31, 2017. It is the applicant's responsibility to submit all materials necessary early enough to ensure timely delivery. Applications may be submitted electronically, hand-delivered or mailed. Late or incomplete applications will not be accepted.

For questions regarding submission of the proposal and/or TDA requirements, please contact TDA's Grants Office, at (512) 463-4406, or by email at Grants@TexasAgriculture.gov.

Texas Public Information Act. Once submitted, all proposals shall be deemed to be the property of the TDA and are subject to the Texas Public Information Act, Texas Government Code, Chapter 552 (PIA).

When paying a prize of $600 or more, the Texas Lottery shall file the appropriate income reporting form with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and shall withhold federal income tax at a rate set by the IRS if required. In the event that the claim is not validated by the Texas Lottery, the claim shall be denied and the claimant shall be notified promptly.
