CAIP Cost-share Applications
County Agricultural Investment Program (CAIP) cost-share applications are anticipated to be available in June at the Extension Office. CAIP cost-share provides funding for farm improvements for approved applicants. View guidelines on what qualifies for cost-share at Investment Area Guidelines.
Oldham County cost-share maximum limit per producer is $1,500. (Cost-share is on a 50-50 basis, meaning producers who are approved will be reimbursed for 50% of eligible purchases, up to a maximum of $1,500).
All applications will be scored, and funds will be awarded based on scoring. CAIP cost-share funding comes from the Kentucky Agricultural Development Fund, administered by the Governor’s Office of Ag Policy.
Questions about completing the application? Make an appointment to meet with the Program Administrator, Laraine Staples, for help in completing the application. Laraine is available BY APPOINTMENT on June 1, 8, and 15 at the Oldham County Extension Office.
If you own or lease farms in another county, check with that County Extension Office for information on CAIP cost-share funds there. Even though the application criteria and scoring are the same across Kentucky, the application period is set by each county ag development council and may be offered at different times during the calendar year.
