More Money Available for Certification Cost Share! CCOF is excited to announce that the 2012 Certification Cost Share Program, which will cover 75 percent of certification costs up to $750, will now apply to each National Organic Program (NOP) scope of certification you have achieved. Applications are being accepted for any entity certified between October 1, 2011 and September 30, 2012.
There are four applicable scopes under the NOP: Crops, Handling, Livestock, and Wild Crop. The scopes you are certified for appear on your certificate. This applies to all states. In California, the CDFA has sent all registrants an updated application. More information, applications, and easy CCOF certification and cost verification tools are available.
