Application forms for this program can only be obtained from an Agriculture and Forestry (AF) Water Specialist after your Long-Term Water Management Plan (LTWMP) has been approved (see details below). Projects must be identified in a LTWMP that has been approved by an AF Water Specialist prior to starting any construction work or incurring any expenses. The Farm Water Supply Program is not an emergency program.
This program will:
- support producers to improve their water supply security and more effectively and efficiently manage their on-farm water resources
- support producers to protect their water resources through beneficial management practices; and
- provide technical assistance to producers to complete an assessment for the management of their water resources (e.g., Long-Term Water Management Plan).
The Farm Water Supply Program shares costs relating to enhancements of a producer's on-farm water supply management, arising from a Long-Term Water Management Plan (LTWMP). These eligible costs are offered through Standard and Special Incentive projects described in detail in the Farm Water Supply Program Funding List.
Grants are available on a first-come, first-served basis for a variety of water sourcing, conservation and protection projects if they are previously identified in the producer's approved LTWMP and meet the program's Terms and Conditions.
