The application deadline for the National Organic Program’s Certification Cost Share is fast approaching!
Any operation that is located within the United States and received organic certification between October 1, 2021, and September 30, 2022, may apply for reimbursement by October 31, 2022.
All certified organic entities in the United States are eligible to apply for a refund of 50 percent of their certification-related costs, including inspection fees, up to a maximum of $500 per certification or certified scope. California State Organic Program registration fees are also eligible for refunding!
To make applying even easier, CCOF has compiled all cost-share forms into a single packet that includes prepared summaries with your required information to fill the forms!
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.
