Arkansas Organic Certification Cost Share Program

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Organic Certification Cost Share Program (OCCSP), administered by the Farm Service Agency (FSA), provides organic producers and handlers with financial assistance to reduce the cost of organic certification. The program reimburses producers and handlers for a portion of their paid certification costs. Once certified, organic producers and handlers are eligible to receive reimbursement for up to 75 percent of certification costs each year, up to a maximum of $750 per certification scope—crops, livestock, wild crops, handling and State Organic Program fees.

Producers and handlers may submit OCCSP applications to FSA county offices or they may apply through participating State agencies.
