The Application Deadline for the National Organic Certification Cost Share Program is Fast Approaching

Any operation that is located within the United States and received organic certification between October 1, 2016 and September 30, 2017 may apply for reimbursement by October 31, 2017.
All certified organic entities in the United States are eligible to apply for a refund of 75% of their certification-related costs, including inspection fees, up to a maximum of $750 per certification or certified scope. California State Organic Program registration fees are also eligible for refunding! 
CCOF has made it easy to apply with cost share forms and instructions and a checklist to mark your progress. We encourage all members to apply for the refunds; whether your operation needs the funds or not, applying helps ensure future funding and program availability for small businesses trying to succeed in the organic marketplace.
