Soil Health Improvement
and Planning Project
The Section 319 Nonpoint Source Management Program has designated funds in South Dakota to provide technical and financial assistance to landowners and operators within the program’s active watershed project areas who are willing to help improve water quality by adopting certain soil health best management practices.
The application for financial and technical assistance under the Soil Health Improvement and Planning Project should be filled out and returned to any South Dakota Soil Health Coalition staff member. Staff member contact information is available in the project overview. Once the application is received and evaluated, SDSHC will contact you with next steps.
