Healthy Soil Program


Welcome to the official website for NMDA’s Healthy Soil Program.

The Healthy Soil Program (HSP) was created when the Healthy Soil Act was signed into law in 2019.  The purpose of the HSP is “to promote and support farming and ranching systems and other forms of land management that increase soil organic matter, aggregate stability, microbiology and water retention to improve the health, yield and profitability of the soils of the state.”  This purpose is achieved through grant-funded projects aimed at improving soil health.

The deadline for Eligible Entities to have submitted HSP grant applications to NMDA was October 8, 2020, at 5 p.m.  Late applications are not being accepted.

Stay tuned to this webpage and NMDA’s social media channels to learn of future HSP funding opportunities.
